Calling the artists participating in the "36th Annual Contemporary Crafts" exhibition "crafters" would certainly do them injustice. These aren't papier-mâché, Popsicle stick houses, and yarn dream catchers, but finely conceived art pieces formed within traditional craft media such as metals, wood, glass, ceramics, fibers, basketry, jewelry, book arts, and paper-making. Fifty-one artworks by 30 artists from a dozen states --including 15 Arizona artists--presently have their works showcased in the Dobson Gallery through Sunday, April 5. Mesa's Jeff Reich was the top winner in this wide-ranging craft extravaganza, taking home the Jurors' Choice Award.

Craft lovers should drop by the Mesa Arts Center, 1 East Main Street, for a look. Admission is free.


Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, 12-5 p.m.; Thursdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Starts: Feb. 13. Continues through April 5, 2015
