Crafthaus Scholarship Recipient 2011: Lauren McAdams blogs the Yuma Conference

February 24th - 26th, 2011


A recipient of the crafthaus scholarship 2011, Lauren McAdams will describe the history of the Yuma Symposium while discussing the events of the conference.  


 Yuma has acted as the “laid back, family-style” conference that offered those in the Southwest, and now artists from across the country, a place to meet when the attendance at other national conferences wasn’t feasible.  Yuma provided participants with a place to socialize and learn about all art media. 


In 2011, the presenters include artists who work in metal, photography, painting, printmaking, fibers, wood and clay.  This diversity is a perfect application for the members of Crafthaus to learn about fellow members as well as finding a new place where they can meet friends for life. 

 

Lauren will interview Yuma veterans and hear about the changes that they have seen.  After the conference, the blog will transition into discussions from Crafthaus members about other locations that offer a similar experience for artists. Finally, there will be various features of work from students that attended the conference as well as other attenedees and presenters.

 

Please join this blog and participate in our experience.

I'll be there along with my installation piece, Ancient Art-i-facts of the Early 21st Century!  It will be great to catch up with everyone again.

Fred, I would love to meet with you at the Symposium and chat about your experiences through the years of Yuma.  I think it's a wonderful place too.

The Symposium is one of my year's highlights.  It is great to meet with friends and make new ones.  I higly recommend this to anyone interested in the arts/crafts.  See you at Lute's!
