Crafthaus exhibitions are a membership perk. All shows are member-curated with images chosen from members' artwork exclusively.

Crafthaus is a democratic forum: EVERY crafthauser regardless of location, academic or media background is invited to submit short proposals and ideas at any time. We like "unusual" exhibition ideas. A lot!

Members will curate their online shows and are solely responsible for their exhibitions from beginning to end. Of course, technical assistance is always available, but crafthaus does not interfere in curatorial decisions.

A typical exhibition contains about 20+ images. If a show has an "open call" (see listings below) all members are invited to contact the curators and submit images via email for the exhibitions posted.

NOTE: There will be absolutely no fee collected from submitting members, and no renumeration will be paid to the curators either ! This is an effort to give all members a chance to do something just for the fun of it, be a curator and select work, or have work shown without regard to the usual hassles and cost of shipping, insurance, storage considerations, and so on.

Exhibitions will stay on crafthaus even after the official exhibition time has passed. Curators and artists are encouraged to add their participation into their bios, with a direct link to the respective page. Because crafthaus grows and work gets added to the site daily, some curators choose to continually evolve their exhibitions even after the official time has passed, therefore taking another look at past exhibitions might reveal new pieces.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
