Mark your calendars for the 36th annual Smithsonian Craft Show, the most prestigious juried show and sale of American fine craft in the country.
The Smithsonian Craft Show is committed to presenting the most thoughtful, original, and skilled American craft and design objects. The Craft Show is looking for artists who produce one-of-a-kind and limited edition objects that have been conceived and perfected by the artist's own hands and created in the artist's studio.
All work submitted to the Smithsonian Craft Show must be created and
made in the United States.
One hundred-twenty premier artists representing all facets of contemporary design and craft will be selected from a large pool artists nationwide. Artists working in the following media are eligible to apply: basketry, ceramics, decorative fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, wearable art and wood.

- Bruce Helander, Independent art critic and writer, curator, artist
