The American Craft Council announced last week that seventeen makers have been selected to participate in the AltCraft section at its flagship show, The American Craft Council Show in Baltimore, February 27 through March 1, 2009 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
AltCraft Artists were selected from hundreds of applicants through a rigorous jury process. Some of our very own Baltimore crafters and artists will be part of the seventeen artists exhibiting!!!
“The Council is pleased for these talented artists and indie designers to be a part of this well-established event,” said Andrew Glasgow, executive director of the American Craft Council. “These makers illustrate the innovative techniques and materials of the burgeoning new handmade craft movement and, as the leading voice in contemporary craft, we recognize and celebrate these individuals.”
