Artists find their calling at all different stages of life, some early on and others further down the road. This exhibition celebrates the determination and passion of those who have pursued an artistic path after initially choosing another career or field of study.  

The exhibition will be held in spring 2018 at Peters Valley School of Craft’s Sally D. Francisco Gallery. Peters Valley is one of the country’s premier craft schools, offering immersive summer workshops for beginners to professionals taught by prominent artists in eight professional studios. We are a not for profit 501c(3) organization established in 1970 in partnership with the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in New Jersey.

Jennifer Adele Zwilling is the Curator of Artistic Programs at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia.

She taught History of Modern Craft at Tyler School of Art for ten years as well as American Art History at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Ms. Zwilling is especially interested in fostering connections between traditional craft media and contemporary artists. Through her scholarship and curatorial projects she explores the intersections between rich historical cultural traditions and vibrant contemporary artistic life.
