The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show Announces 37th Annual Show

The Premier Show & Sale of Craft in the Country Announces its 2013 Show with 195 Selected Artists and Guest Artists from Lithuania

PHILADELPHIA (August 14, 2013) – The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center (12th and Arch Streets, Philadelphia) for its 37th Annual Show from November 7, 2013 through November 10, 2013 with its Preview Party Gala on November 6, 2013. This premier show and sale of craft raises funds for the Philadelphia Museum of Art and offer patrons the chance to view and purchase one-of-a-kind museum quality pieces.

Presented by the Museum’s Women’s Committee and the Craft Show Committee, the Show hand selects each artist from a highly competitive jury process where over 1,000 artists apply. The 2013 Show will feature 195 of the finest and most dynamic craft artists in the United States, in the following mediums: basketry, ceramics, fiber decorative, fiber wearable, furniture, glass, precious and semi-precious jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper and wood.

“I am honored to serve as the 2013 Chair,” notes Laura Rothrock, “guiding a team of over 100 dedicated volunteers. Our mission to raise funds for the Philadelphia Museum of Art and promote craft artists remains unchanged after 37 years. Nearly $11 million has been raised over our history to fund programs and projects encompassing all aspects of the Museum.”

In addition to announcing the 2013 Show’s new and returning artists, the Show will also invite artists from Lithuania to participate in the Show’s Guest Artist Program. A special feature of the Show that began in 2001, the Guest Artist Program selects and highlights craft from a single country selected each year. Countries that have participated include Japan, Ireland, Germany, Finland, Israel, Korea and more. The guest artists will offer patrons the opportunity to see, buy and experience craft made by twenty-three of the finest contemporary Lithuanian craft artists. All work is one-of-a-kind and handmade by the artists.

The 37th Annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show is the leading fundraiser for the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Proceeds from the Show are used to purchase works of art and craft for the permanent collection, fund special exhibits and education programs, and support conservation and publication projects.
