New Craftspeople Juried into KCMP For 2003

The Kentucky Craft Marketing Program (KCMP) accepted 56 new craftspeople for participation in the program during its annual jury session. An additional 12 craftspeople are expected to be included after successful completion of the program's jury mentoring program, making a total of 68 new KCMP juried participants.

The 2003 session was conducted by a panel of in-state and out-of-state craft professionals. Out-of-state jurors included: Cease Giddings, Retailer, Folkworks, Evanston, Illinois; Mary Strope, Manager, Regional Craft Marketing, George Little Management, Inc., White Plains, New York; and Harry Hearne, President-Tennessee Association of Craft Artists, Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

In-state jurors included: Tim Glotzbach, Founding Director/Dean, Kentucky School of Craft, Hindman; Victoria Faoro, Executive Director/Buyer, Kentucky Artisans Center at Berea; Terry Fields, Berea College Craft Program Instructor, Berea, Kentucky; and Mary Kinney, Kentucky Collection Pilot Retailer, Mary Kinney Millinery, LaGrange, Kentucky.

Entries were scored by jurors in three areas: design, technique, and originality or authenticity. Staff of the Kentucky Folklife Program provided expertise in evaluating the authenticity of traditional arts.

New juried member Kendal Wise said, "The more I've learned about the opportunities available in your Program, the more excited I am about becoming a juried member. Marketing is essential to artists like myself, and I look forward to the benefits the KCMP can offer me in promoting my product."

Juried members will have an opportunity to participate in wholesale and retail venues, such as the New York International Gift Fair; Kentucky Crafted: The Market; The Governor's Derby Day Celebration; The Kentucky Collection; and other statewide initiatives. Participants also may use the "Kentucky Crafted" logo and receive technical assistance for their business and craft. Congratulations to all of the new members!

Tim Glotzbach Named Rude Osolnik Award Recipient For 2003

Tim Glotzbach of Hindman, Kentucky, awarded the eighth annual Rude Osolnik Award for 2003

The Kentucky Craft Marketing Program and the Kentucky Museum of Arts + Design recently honored Tim Glotzbach of Hindman, Kentucky, with the eighth annual Rude Osolnik Award for 2003. The award honors its namesake, Rude Osolnik, the nationally acclaimed wood turner from Berea, Kentucky, who devoted his life to the development of his craft and teaching. This prestigious award recognizes artists for their contributions to the craft community, preservation of craft traditions through teaching and sharing, and exemplary workmanship. Previous recipients are Alma Lesch, Emily Wolfson, Arturo Alonzo Sandoval, Homer Ledford, Joseph Molinaro, Stephen Rolfe Powell and Bryon Temple (posthumously).

Tim Glotzbach received his B.S. in Art from Indiana State University in 1974 and acquired his Masters Degree in Art from Southern Illinois University in 1977. He spent the next three years as an assistant professor of art, jewelry and metalsmithing at the State University of New York. In 1980 Mr. Glotzbach came to Kentucky and joined the faculty at Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) as a professor of art, jewelry, and metalsmithing. He spent the next twenty years at EKU.

In 1996, Tim was selected as a Faculty Consultant for arts-related projects with the Center for Economic Development, Entrepreneurship and Technology (CEDET) at EKU. He used his CEDET time to aid the Kentucky Guild of Artists organization by serving as their Treasurer. Tim also contributed to the planning of the Kentucky Artisans Center at Berea and was instrumental in securing the Steele Reece Foundation grant for the Kentucky Artisan Heritage Trails project. In 1998, he was appointed to the board of the Kentucky Appalachian Artisan Center, Hindman, Kentucky, and served as chair of the program committee.

Presently, Glotzbach is the Academic Dean, Division of Heritage & Humanities, and Campus Coordinator, Knott County Branch at Hazard Community College, which is part of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). He is also Dean and Founding Director of the newly formed Kentucky School of Craft (KSoC) in Hindman, Kentucky. Prior to accepting the position as Dean, he was appointed to the National Advisory Council for KSoC by the President of Hazard Community College. The council gave guidance in developing the school, which will encourage innovative teaching strategies, while providing strong ties to the community and the Appalachian region. The KSoC offers training to students in the technical aspects of craft while preparing them with the entrepreneurial skills of a craft professional.

In April 2003, he was elected chair of the board of directors for the Craft Organization Development Association (CODA), a national group dedicated to serving organizations with education and professional development to foster public appreciation and understanding of craft.

Over the last 28 years, Glotzbach has conducted numerous workshops, lectures, seminars and conducted research, secured grants/awards, served on national and state art and business boards aiding communities, artists and educational institutions in Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, California, New York, Montana, Arkansas, Texas, West Virginia, Georgia and Louisiana.

As a renowned metal artist, his work has been exhibited every year since 1975 in noted museums, galleries and traveling exhibits across the United States. As an author and co-author, he has produced eight publications and filled 28 private commissions of work for clients across the country.

Glotzbach was honored at a dinner, Friday, July 25, 2003, in conjunction with "Outside the Lines: New Frontiers for Kentucky Artists," an artisans product development workshop weekend at Somerset Community College, Somerset, Kentucky, July 25-26, 2003. The workshop is presented by the Kentucky Craft Marketing Program and the Kentucky Museum of Arts + Design at Somerset Community College, Somerset, Kentucky. The workshop is a highly focused two-day series designed to help craftspeople and artists of all skill levels add a new dimension to their craftwork and business skills.
