About the Juror

Janet Kawada taught for over 25 years in the 3D-FA Fibers Department at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and for a number of years at New England School of Art and Design. She has taught workshops throughout New England.

Kawada’s work has been exhibited at galleries across North America. Her practice includes fiber and mixed media sculpture. She received a BFA in Fibers from MassArt and an MFA in Visual Arts from Vermont College.  She was an exhibiting member of the Kingston Gallery in Boston from 1998-2012 and Director from 1999-2003. She is on the advisory board of the Eliot School in Jamaica Plain and a member of the St. Botolph Club’s Foundation Board. Kawada uses both fiber materials and fiber techniques in her work. She builds relationships between multiples and materials and emphasizes the strength and fragility that comes from them. Her emphasis on textile processes and her use of everyday materials forms the basis of a body of work that is tangible and tactile.
