The Guild is once again offering a $500.00 scholarship to a senior art student who is planning on pursuing upper level art or fine craft education in the visual arts.
Please email Jack Thiesen at Artsandcraftsmenguild@gmail.com for more information.
Below is a link for our Scholarship Application (applications are due in May of each year)
Excellence in artistry and craftsmanship are core values of the guild. The "Juried Artist" designation recognizes those artists who consistently create exemplary work rooted in the Arts & Crafts tradition. Artists are juried twice a year, in March and September, and if accepted, may use the distinctive and prestigious Triangle Rose in their work for three years.
After being accepted as a Juried Artist, the Guild offers artists a Lifetime Juried Artist status. This means that once juried, an artist will re-jury at the three year mark, at the six year mark, and at the 11 year mark. If all three re-juries are successful, the artist will be granted lifetime juried status.
If you are a new member looking forward to jurying, the Guild does require you to be a member in good standing for at least six months prior to jurying, and you must have attended at least 3 meetings. For members abroad, or those with scheduling issues, our meetings are simultaneously presented via Zoom and attendance in the Zoom meeting does count toward meeting requirements.
If you are already juried, you must have attended at least three meetings in the 12 months preceding your re-jury date.
Evidenced Mastery of Medium: Exemplary craftsmanship and construction
Design: Composition, aesthetics, and originality
Expertise: Knowledge of process based on both written and verbal presentation
Artists wishing to jury must have maintained membership in the Guild for a minimum of 6 months and attended at least 3 meetings (in person or online) in order to be qualified as an applicant.
Below is a link to our jury application. The next jury will be held on September 23rd, 2023 (applications are due September 9th). If you are interested in jurying, please print this sheet out and follow the instructions. Our jury coordinators will contact you to arrange a time slot.
