Welcoming Artists From Israel to the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show – Part Two

In our last blog we introduced the first round of artists from Israel that are part of our Guest Artist Program at this year’s Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. In this week’s blog, meet the second half of this amazing grouping of talented artists, traveling thousands of miles to join with 195 artists from across the United States. The Guest Artist Program has been an integral part of the PMA Craft Show for nearly 20 of its 43 years in existence, with previous countries participating, including Japan, Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, Finland, Canada, Korea, Scotland and Lithuania. Israel was represented in 2008 and was a huge hit.

This year’s guest artist program is possible thanks to the support of AIDA (Association of Israel’s Decorative Arts). AIDA’s mission is to foster the development of contemporary decorative artists from Israel by connecting them to an international audience of galleries, institutions and collectors. Israel doesn’t have a Craft Council so AIDA has played that role since its inception 17 years ago. “An international guest artist program is unique in the world of fine craft events and we are happy to have so many of our artists included in the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show,” say Dale and Doug Anderson, AIDA’s co-founders along with Andy and Charles Bronfman. 

Please join us in welcoming these artists by attending the show, visiting their booths, and taking their works of art home with you. Click HERE for tickets.
