We are thrilled to introduce the recipients of the 2015 American Craft Council Emerging Voices Awards. In this program’s inaugural year, jurors Jean W. McLaughlin of Penland School of Crafts, Lowery Stokes Sims of the Museum of Arts and Design, and ACC’s Perry A. Price faced a rich roster of nominees, all still developing and defining their careers. The winners – one artist and one scholar, along with four finalist artists – represent an exciting vision of this field’s future.
