Every three years, the Biggs Museum hosts a juried competition of their Delaware By Hand artist membership in order to select individual artists that are deemed masters of their craft. The 2015 winning members, as well as their finest submissions, are selected by Brandi P. Clark, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen. Each winner is represented by at least three works of art in the Delaware By Hand Masters exhibition. These works are eligible for the coveted Museum Purchase Prize of $1500, a special winning allocation also selected by the competition juror, Ms. Clark. The exhibitors have often selected two additional works to represent the scope of their talent and abilities and their works are on view in the museum’s timeline galleries alongside examples of the historic permanent collection of fine and decorative arts.
