How Craft Became an Art Market Force – Artsy

“…Artists who have long specialized in materials like textiles, ceramics, and glass—many of whom, not coincidentally, are women—have been getting recent recognition for their contributions to contemporary art, receiving representation from important galleries and support from tastemaking collectors. This includes revered textile artists like Lenore Tawney and Sheila Hicks; ceramicists like Arlene SchechetKlara KristalovaBetty Woodman, and Ken Price; and glass sculptors like Joyce J. Scott and Josiah McElheny. “

So nice to see Baltimore’s own Joyce J. Scott get some well-deserved attention in this article from Artsy. I love her work. – dr
