The Smithsonian Craft Show Returns

From April 22 to 26, the National Building Museum will host the 38th Smithsonian Craft Show, a juried event spotlighting furniture, ceramics, fiber art, jewelry and work in wood, glass and metal by 119 artisans. Among this year’s highlights: a Q&A with ceramics artist Patti Warashina and Smithsonian American Art Museum director Stephanie Stebich.

Work by a number of local artists will be shown, including a sculpture by Takoma Park-based fiber artist Helen O’Connor; and knives crafted by Monolith Knives in Charlottesville. smithsoniancraftshow.org
