In 1970 the first Peters Valley Fine Craft Fair was held and its success was the catalyst that formed Peters Valley School of Craft. Peters Valley is a nationally recognized non-profit focused on cultivating creative thinking through fine craft media and educating the public about fine craft.
We do this through immersion learning workshops, outreach events, artist residencies as well as public lectures and gallery exhibitions The Craft Fair is an exhibition and selling venue for artists, showcasing fine craft. The event is well known throughout NJ, PA and NY and is one of the most influential fundraising events supporting the educational programming and scholarships at Peters Valley.
The show is advertised heavily in the tri-state area. The exhibition progr am and exhibitor map is printed in three magazines that are distributed leading up to and throughout the event. Social media, posters, direct mailings, etc.
Manufacturers, importers and agents other than craft artists should not apply. Work should be original and the unique vision of the artist applying. Work created from commercially available kits is not accepted.
Work that is created under the direct supervision of the applicant in a small-studio production scenario is acceptable if the artist has a constant hand in direction, feedback, and assistance in the making process. Learn more about our policies.
