She credited the staff at the center for putting the show together. Getting the show ready is no simple task. It starts with artists applying to display their work, which is also for sale. The work is then sent to the center by mail or delivery. It’s set up in the center’s galleries. The party also featured a buffet provided by Culinary Delights by Catering By Design, Philadelphia, and jazz by Phyllis Chappel. The CraftForms exhibit features unique crafts, furniture, lights, pottery, and jewelry. The work ranged from a symmetrical wooden piece, The Feeling of Movement, by Derick Bencomo of Hawaii to a 90 by 90-inch, colorful tapestry called Field Guide #1 Yellow Sedges, North by Mary Zicafoose of Nebraska. A simple clay and hand-carved canoe with a pine tree called Slow Going by Kristen Cliffel of Ohio is also among the artwork.
