The Academy Art Museum is holding its 22nd annual Craft Show for 70 artists from across the United States for three full days in October. The annual indoor, juried Craft Show dates have moved just slightly due to construction beginning just after the show. And, to help reach an even broader audience, a third full day has been added on Friday, October 11th.
The Academy Art Museum Craft Show team looks forward to welcoming artists from all craft categories and will work with artists to insure the broadest possible reach with patrons at our location as well as online. In 2019, we will again work the artists to reach nearly 250,000 people as we did last year through our social media efforts.
The Academy Art Museum, founded in 1958 is a cultural hub of the Delmarva region for art, music, and educational programming. The Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums, a distinction bestowed on fewer than 5% of U.S. museums for their commitment to excellence, accountability and high professional standards. All proceeds from fees and generous community sponsorship go directly to support the Museum’s mission of providing meaningful art experiences and education to the Mid-Shore.
We strive to build larger participation in our juried show, welcoming returning artists and selecting first time exhibitors who we believe will have success at the show. With nearly half of the participants exhibiting for the first time, we typically attract over 2,500 people to the weekend event.
This year we will expand our show to invite patrons to participate all day Friday, October 11th with a show opening at 10:00 AM. We will remain open on Saturday and Sunday with a close on Sunday at 3:00 PM.
Additionally, we will again launch an online version of the show at the first of October, featuring items donated by artists. The online auction serves as the social media vehicle for sharing information about participating artists and the Craft Show’s live weekend event. The online feature last year built enthusiasm in the Craft Show and interest in the artists for weeks in advance of the show and we will work with participating artists to establish effective links to their sites.
This is truly a show by artists for artists.
