This annual exhibition showcases the work of the school’s 2019 visiting instructors and summer artistic staff.
Each year Peters Valley School of Craft invites over 150 artists to teach workshops in each of its studios: Blacksmithing, Ceramics, Fibers (Surface Design & Weaving), Fine Metals (& Jewelry), Woodworking (& Woodturning), Photography, Printmaking and Special Topics (Glass, Painting, Sculpture, etc.). These nationally and internationally recognized artists come to Peters Valley from nearby, around the country and worldwide.
Peters Valley also hosts master, mid-career and emerging Artists-in-Residence, along with the visiting instructors. For the workshop season Studio Assistants in blacksmithing, fibers, fine metals, photography, woodworking, and special topics join three year-round Studio Managers on campus. Through this Studio Assistantship program, Peters Valley gives emerging artists the opportunity to learn from and work alongside nationally-recognized instructors in the immersive workshop environment
