“CraftTexas 2014”

Elizabeth Kozlowski, curator at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, says the organization’s newest exhibit, “CraftTexas 2014,” reveals the depth and breadth of talent in the state of Texas. The eighth in a series of biennial juried exhibitions showcasing the best in Texas-made contemporary craft, “CraftTexas 2014” features 49 works by 44 Texas artists in a variety of media including sculpture, jewelry, textiles, installations and furniture.
