NJ Artists and Smithsonian Craft Show

Join us at the 2015 Smithsonian Craft Show Reception, National Building Museum, Thursday, April 23, from 5 to 7:30. We aim to meet up at the Museum fountain (inside, main at 6 pm, head for the bar and enjoy some wine and cheese, and then visit the tables of our three New Jersey craft artists who are among the 121 artists selected from a national pool of 1,100.

New Jersey’s three artists will display in the ceramic and furniture categories, but there are also artists in the following areas: basketry, decorative fiber, glass, jewelry, paper, leather, wearable art and mixed media. (This show is considered to be the most prestigious juried show and sale of fine American sculptural objects and design in the country.) NJ Members of Congress representing the hometown of the artists have also been invited to attend the reception.

We are sold out of our discount tickets, but you can purchase at the door for $20.

Tickets are only usable for one day, but you can use it for any one of the four days starting Thursday at 10:30 am and ending Sunday at 5 pm. You DO have to have this ticket to get in to the reception area Thursday, where there will be a cash wine bar. Once you use the ticket Thursday you cannot use it again.
