Materials: Hard+Soft @ Patterson-Appleton Arts Center
Feb 7 @ 11:00 am – May 9 @ 5:00 pm

Recognized as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition, began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. Now in its 33rd year, the exhibition shows the top national and international artists as we celebrate the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media.

Last year’s call for artists drew over 1,100 submissions from 12 countries around the world. Juror Janet McCall selected 70 works for exhibition at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center including works from 28 states and 4 countries including Germany, Canada, and Taiwan in varying media including metal, wood, plastic, ceramic, fiber, glass, and mixed media.

This exhibition is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts and the City of Denton. The 33rd annual Materials will be on view February 7 – May 9, 2020 at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center.

Pas de deux: A Couples Exhibition @ Patterson-Appleton Arts Center
Feb 19 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

Pas de deux is a ballet term meaning step of two, a partner’s dance that includes parts when the partners perform together but also separately in solos as part of a longer grand performance, showcasing their skills as individuals and a team.

The Greater Denton Arts Council has joined up with couples varying in age, skill, and media to present our version of a visual arts pas de deux. Six couples have been invited to showcase their individual works and if they have any collaborations. The aim is to show how artists influence and support each other through their close relationships with their fellow artist.

Join us for the Opening Reception on February 7th from 6 to 8pm.
