Statewide Jury Session

Saturday April 19th, 2008

Members wishing to apply for juried status may do so by submitting 5 to 10 actual pieces of their work to the Jury, which is composed of experienced and previously juried ADC members, representing the four major craft areas: clay, fiber, metal and wood. If a member does not receive juried status, he or she is encouraged to continue working on artistic growth using the criteria listed below, and then resubmit their work at a later time.

Criteria used by the Jury to aid in the evaluation of art work:
1. There should be an understanding of the materials used.
2. The materials used should be appropriate for the concept.
3. There should be a mastery and refinement of technique.
4. The piece should be well constructed and durable.
5. The piece should function properly as intended.
6. The intent or concept should be clear.
7. There should be design consistency within the piece, and in the body of work.
8. The design should be appropriate to both the concept and the medium.
9. The work should show that the artist is working toward the development of a personal style.

Members from both Central and Southern Arizona Chapters are eligible to apply. The number of applicants will be limited to 8 people, determined upon a first come, first served basis. If you have any questions regarding the process, you may contact the State Jury Chairman. Marcy Wrenn, ADC State Jury Chairman, (520)297-2786 or email

The actual jurying will take place at Brandel Studios in Tucson. There is a $10.00 fee for submitting work to the Jury. Reservations must be made in advance in order to secure your place.
