Baltimore Convention Center
The American Craft Show returns to the Baltimore Convention Center on February 23-25, 2018, to showcase the work of more than 650 of the country’s most talented contemporary artists presenting their latest handmade creations in jewelry, clothing, furniture, and home décor. The show runs for three days, with a special $5 ticket price Friday evening after 5 p.m. Show-goers can look forward to the return of interactive programming including Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft, Hip Pop, Style Slam, and Let’s Make.
Hip Pop is an emerging artists program that highlights talented artists who are new to the show scene. Participating artists are selected through a jurying process and grouped into shared booths. This community-based structure provides a supportive atmosphere for the best and brightest emerging talents to interact with each other – as well as seasoned artists and show-goers – all while having the chance to show off their work and skills.
Let’s Make is an initiative that connects craftsmanship to craft by honing in on the actual process of making and what it takes to produce the beautiful work at the show. During the Show, a variety of artisans will provide interactive demonstrations at “Inspiration Stations,” where show-goers will have the chance to participate in the actual process of creating a piece of artwork.
Style Slam pairs professional stylists with the talented network of the Show’s fashion wearable, accessory, and jewelry artists to demonstrate how the statement pieces ACC is know for are the perfect fit for any fashion-conscious wardrobe.
Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft returns for its sixth year, with this year’s theme being “Color Story.” This home décor exhibition, which puts craft into context by featuring craft-inspired room vignettes created by designers, will feature pieces that center around a favorite color or group of colors that make a cohesive design statement.
With a variety of specialty categories, the 2018 American Craft Show in Baltimore offers something for everyone. Shoppers will experience the work of hundreds of the country’s most talented artists under one roof, while exploring the process each artist uses to create his or her work. Don’t miss this opportunity to shop one-of-a-kind, fine-quality crafts while engaging with the country’s top artists.
