Craft artists who exhibit in Crafts America shows must be residents of and working in the United States. All work must be original and made by the artist, or with assistance under the artist's supervision. Work should be made by hand or with the use of appropriate tools. Crafts America encourages you to exhibit your one-of-a-kind and limited edition work.
Applicants must be juried in one of the following categories: basketry, ceramics, fiber decorative, fiber wearable, furniture (includes all media), glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, and wood. Categories not accepted: fine arts such as painting, photography, lithography, etc., except when incorporated into an otherwise acceptable craft category. Also not accepted: dried flower arrangements, pressed flowers, seed and pod decorations, cut bottles and embellished objects such as painted boxes, weather boards, stones, shells, buttons, decorated furniture and hand-made reproductions, objects made from commercial kits or commercially available plans.
A craftsperson who works in more than one media category must submit an application in each category. If only one application is accepted, only work in that category may be exhibited.
Work that reflects a variety of styles within the same media can be submitted on one application provided that the images reflect the same proportion of work as will be represented in the booth, with the exception of jewelry. All jewelry must be submitted to be juried in the jewelry category.
Artists that collaborate and create one body of work, as submitted to the jury, may share a booth.
Crafts America reserves the right to invite up to 10% new artists to these shows to balance the style and content of the juried work.
Cash awards will be made for outstanding work in various categories. The 2011 award recipients are invited, jury exempt, to participate in that show again in 2012. Please submit application without fee.
Each show will be provided security on the premises both day and night; however, each artist exhibits at his or her own risk.
