The Art of Craft

One-of-a-kind treasures abound at the 26th Annual Washington Craft Show

The Art of Craft Holiday shoppers and art aficionados alike will find plenty to ogle at the 26th Annual Washington Craft Show, taking place November 1 to 3 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. This year’s show will display the work of 190 contemporary craft artists in a dozen different media including furniture, ceramics, glass, basketry, paper, wood, wearable textiles and jewelry. A professional jury selected the artists, who hail from all over the U.S.

Informative discussions by craft experts round out the weekend. At 1 p.m. on Friday, November 1, Smithsonian American Art Museum director Elizabeth Broun and Renwick Gallery curator Nicholas Bell will share their thoughts on contemporary American craft. And on Sunday, November 3 at 2 p.m., artist Amy Nguyen will discuss how an extended trip to Japan influenced her textile creations.  

Fashion shows highlighting the work of many exhibitors will take place on November 1 at 3 p.m. and November 2 at 1 p.m. washingtoncraftshow.com
