Promoting its place in the forefront of craft education, the Craft Show will devote its 2014 guest artists program to emerging artists. This year the show will again offer outstanding work from top craft students from The University of the Arts, Moore College of Art & Design, Kutztown University, and Savannah College of Art and Design.
The event will also include artist meet and greets, on-site artist demonstrations and a craft beer social night. The opening night gala on Nov. 5 from 4 to 9 p.m. offers collectors an opportunity to get a first look at the Show and includes a cocktail buffet. More details will be available soon at http://www.pmacraftshow.org.
Organized and coordinated by 2014 Show Chair Carol Blank Barsh and Show Manager Nancy O’Meara and staffed by volunteers, Craft Show proceeds benefit the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Over the last 37 years, the Show has contributed more than $11 million in museum funding, used to purchase works of art and craft for the permanent collections, support education programs, and contribute to conservation and publication projects. “Not only do all the proceeds go directly to varied museum-wide activities, but a percentage also goes in a fund that is applied to acquiring contemporary craft,” says Philadelphia Museum of Art associate curator Elisabeth Agro. “That’s what sets the Craft Show apart.”
