Helen W. Drutt English (Helen Drutt) was Founder/Director of her eponymous gallery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1973-2002), which was among the first galleries in the United States to make a commitment to the modern and contemporary craft movement. In 1973, she developed the first syllabus for a college-level course in the history of the field. Drutt has published numerous essays; organized exhibitions, i.e. Poetics of Clay, Brooching It Diplomatically: A Tribute to Madelaine K. Albright, and Challenging the Chatelaine!; and curated American studio jewelry for the Museo del Gioiello, Vicenza, Italy (2016-18). She has built a permanent collection of contemporary crafts for The State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia, and she is currently building a collection for the National Museum of Sweden. The Helen Williams Drutt Collection of international studio jewelry has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and internationally, and in 2002, 800 works entered the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Drutt has received numerous awards and three honorary degrees, from the University of the Arts, Moore College of Art, and Alfred University. She is a trustee of the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution; Fellow of the American Craft Council; and a recipient of the Distinguished Educator's Award 2018, James Renwick Alliance, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC.
