STYLE’ 18 JURORS
Diane Master has had a dynamic presence in the Bay Area craft and design scene as the founder of the prestigious Palo Alto Clay and Glass Festival, now in its 26th year. Additionally, Master was the manager and buyer for the Palo Alto Art Center Gallery Shop for nearly two decades. Stirred by an exhibition on indigo dying techniques at the PAAC and the countless inspiring craft artists she had encountered and worked with, Master launched the first STYLE as a one-off, art-to-wear textile and art jewelry event. STYLE’s reputation for quality and inventiveness made it an instant success among artists and consumers alike and 12 years later it continues to thrive. This year, STYLE has taken a significant step forward through its association with the Museum of Craft and Design.
JoAnn Edwards has overseen the Museum of Craft and Design’s vision and growth since its founding in downtown San Francisco in 2003 to its relocation and acclaimed 2013 grand reopening in San Francisco’s historic Dogpatch district. Through the development of highly celebrated and innovative exhibitions and MakeArt educational programs, the Museum of Craft and Design has grown under Edwards’ leadership into an internationally recognized cultural institution that extends the institutional mission beyond its brick and mortar space.
