The Arts & Craftsmen Guild on the historic Roycroft Campus is proud to congratulate and welcome 10 newly juried and re-juried artists:
• Diane Babcock, Linoleum Block Print
• Lisa Ballowe, Bead Embroidery
• Melissa Buckley, Fiber and Mixed Media (collage)
• Jim Cordes, Wood
• Marie Gniazdowski, Silver Jewelry
• Paulette Krakowski, Colored pencil
• Susanne O’Brien, Fiber, Wet Felting Wool
• Yvonne Stoklosa, Glass
• Sarah Wachowski, Vegan Leather & Canvas

Existing juried artists are required to renew their designation every three years. Whether a new applicant or current juried artist, this rigorous and consistent process helps maintain a standard of excellence. It can also be enjoyable, as the jury panel and artists support each other with exchange in conversation. Upon acceptance, juried artists may use the distinctive Triangle Rose shop mark and are recognized as a creator of exemplary work rooted in the Arts & Crafts tradition.
The Arts & Craftsmen Guild is a not-for-profit division of the Roycroft Campus and seeks to promote and preserve the home of the American Arts & Crafts Movement. Its mission is to inspire a positive collaboration amongst the craftsmen, the community and the Roycroft Campus. The Guild has grown to over 60 members, with more than half being juried artists from around the USA and Canada, as well as non-juried artists, supporters and students. T
For those interested in getting involved, the next public Guild meeting will be Oct. 13 at 5:30 p.m. at the Roycroft Power House, with a special presentation by Jason Baker, wood veneer artist.
