The 3rd Annual Baltimore Fine Craft Show returns to the Baltimore Convention Center August 30-September 2 2018. This dedicated Fine Craft Section of Baltimore's 38th Annual Art, Antique and Jewelry Show is presented by the Palm Beach Show Group.
The Show will feature the nation's top contemporary craft artists, offering their latest celebrated works in a comfortable, indoor setting. Building on its 38 year run in Baltimore, the Art, Antique and Jewelry Show, with the added component of fine craft, will create the opportunity for creators of original art, specifically one-of-a-kind objects, to be exposed to a discriminating audience of collectors of fine objects.
Three jurors who are experts in the field and newly selected each year will choose the artists from a large pool of applicants. Previous exhibitors must re-apply each year. There is no quota for any category of Craft Art. The Show does not charge sales commissions.
Acceptable Media Categories:
Basketry, ceramics, decorative fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, wearable art, and wood.
The Craft Show is committed to presenting the most thoughtful, original, and skilled American & International craft and design objects. The Baltimore Fine Craft Show is looking for 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.
New technologies such as computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) that are used in the designing and making of a craft are acceptable, but not acceptable when these technologies are used to actually make the final product.
Repurposed materials, including found objects, are being used as art material to make some craft pieces. This is a desirable practice, and artists who incorporate repurposed materials are encouraged to specify this in their statements.
