As November nears, we know your excitement for seeing the incredible work of 195 fine craft artists all under one roof is building. But do you know how the Show’s proceeds benefit the Philadelphia Museum of Art every year?
For Craft Show visitors already mapping out a schedule for Nov. 6—9, here’s a roundup of fine craft-related museum and gallery exhibitions worth planning ahead to see.
When Craft Show shoppers aren’t browsing one-of-a-kind, wearable works of art to add to their wardrobes over four jam-packed days in November, they can find wares from many of our craft artists on sites like Etsy. Placing these museum-quality pieces for sale through an online retailer is the digital equivalent to the street selling of only a few decades ago—and for some artists, it can be a jumpstart to a career.
We’re thrilled to announce the lineup of 195 of the best contemporary fine craft artists in the country who will present their work at the 38th Annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show! Through the highly competitive jury process that considered more than 1,000 applicants, selected artists from Maine to California will offer their one-of-a-kind works at the Pennsylvania Convention Center November 6-9, 2014.
