Each year, roughly 100 craftsmen from across the United States submit applications to become Exhibiting Members of Piedmont Craftsmen. The rigorous 2-part peer jury process ensures that those chosen for membership are among the most talented, imaginative and visionary artists working in their respective media.
At this year's Craft Fair, the standards committee invited the following 19 artists to become exhibiting members. The artwork of the 2014 new members will be featured in the Piedmont Craftsmen Gallery during the "New Members Show" in March of 2014.
