25 Years of Handcrafted Art

Book CoverACE recently published  “These Hands Tell a Story: 25 Years of Handcrafted Art.” This “coffee table” book  features original photos of 25 leading artists who have participated in the American Craft Exposition since its inception.

“These Hands” features award-winning artists Cliff Lee and Josh Simpson, whose work appears in the White House Collection of American Crafts, and MacArthur Foundation Fellow, or “genius grant” winner, Mary Jackson.

“The American Craft Exposition has been a highlight of the American craft scene for the last 25 years and represents the absolute pinnacle of craft shows,” states Simpson.

Through sales of “These Hands,” ACE hopes not only to broaden awareness about the tradition of fine craft, but also to further its charitable mission. Proceeds from this book and the funds raised by ACE will support of breast and ovarian cancer research programs at NorthShore University HealthSystem.

The book is available for $25. To reserve a copy, either visit the ACE Web site or  contact The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem at Evanston & Glenbrook Hospitals by emailing craft@northshore.org or calling (847) 570-5095.
