    Fine Craft As A Business: Pricing Your Work & Preparing Your Photos for Juries

    $1.00

    Pricing Your Work: Former Standards VP and avid collector of fine craft, Paula Lewis, will give you some key points about pricing your work. We’ll talk about the differences between retail from the artist, wholesale, and consignment gallery pricing and a little bit about commission work. After retiring from a 20-year career as a musician and singer, Lewis discovered enameling was the perfect medium to continue to express herself creatively. She finds that the elements of harmony, contrast, and movement are as applicable to glass and metal as they are to music.

    Jurying Photos: You work hard to perfect your craft, and now you’re trying to apply it to your first show. Or – you’re trying to get into better quality shows and it’s more of a struggle than you anticipated. A key part of a successful application is your photos! This session with Haverford Chapter President Christine Wright will give you better insight into what jurors are looking for in your photos and how to improve the odds of getting accepted to your next fair. Wright has been creating beaded jewelry for over thirty years, and she combines traditional bead weaving techniques with freeform weaving.

    Only Craftsman-level members in good standing are eligible to apply for Master Artisan status. Applicants submit 4 to 6 digital images that represent the nature and quality of the work to be reviewed by the jurors at the Master Artisan Session; a statement outlining the applicant’s craft background, education, specialized techniques and studio setup (i.e. independent studio, partnership, production studio with assistants or employees); and payment of the application fee.

    Applications are reviewed by members of the Standards Committee and select appointees, based on their expertise in the applicant’s medium. Those applicants who meet the application criteria are invited to attend the next jury session on the PGC calendar. If there are too many qualified applicants to be accommodated in one session, the applicants will be invited according to the date of receipt of their completed application.

    The non-refundable application fee is $55.00. Applicants whose works do not earn Master Artisan status may re-apply within two years from the date of unsuccessful jurying for a reduced fee of $25.00.

    You must include 4-6 digital images of your work. The panel considering your application wants to see a body of work that is cohesive when shown together. If your application is accepted, you may bring different work as long as it’s similar in style.

    By submitting this form with payment, you are agreeing that you have read, understood and comply with the Jurying Rules and Procedures that are outlined in the Description section.
