2020 ACADEMY VIRTUAL CRAFT SHOW

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 12 AM - 7 PM (VIRTUAL PREVIEW EVENT)
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 8PM - 
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, AUCTION CLOSES AT 8 PM

The Academy Art Museum is holding its 23nd annual Craft Show for 40 plus artists from across the United States. The Craft Show will be a virtual event this year in the format of an online auction that runs from October 16-18.  Our museum patrons and community friends are enthusiastic about the new format and we plan to make it a special weekend that captures the spirit and excitement of our real life Show with a Preview Event and extensive promotion. 

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 online. In 2020, 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 sponsorships 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 and we hope to introduce more patrons to our virtual event this year.

 

This is truly a show by artists for artists. We hope that you will enjoy our online activities and auction as well as continue to support our craft show artists during this unprecedented time.
