More than 700 contemporary craft artists will present their latest handmade works including jewelry, clothing, furniture and home décor items Feb. 27-March 1 at the 33rd annual American Craft Council Show at the Baltimore Convention Center.

Through a rigorous jury process, master artisans from across the country were selected to participate in the event as well as a select group of Canadian artists who will be exhibiting at an ACC show for the first time.

The largest, juried indoor craft show in the nation will feature the following special exhibits:

Craft4Kids: Artists will present their latest lines of clothing, furniture, toys, home décor and more designed especially for children.

Greencraft: Responding to contemporary issues, this exhibit will feature artists incorporating recycled or found materials and eco-friendly techniques into their work.

Searchlight Artists: Selected from the nation’s leading craft colleges, museums and residencies, 15 artists who have never exhibited at the show have been invited to present and sell their work in a stunning gallery space on the show floor.

School-to-Market: To help bridge the gap between academic programs and the marketplace for sculptural and functional craft, the ACC has invited crafts students of Virginia Commonwealth University and Savannah College of Art and Design to curate a section of their work.
