The goal of the ACC shows are to:
- Attract diverse audiences
- Provide an environment that creates opportunities to see and understand how objects are made
- Give visitors and other artists a glimpse at the inspiration behind the work
- Demonstrate how handmade objects enhance daily life.
The opportunity to touch and feel the amazing handmade items produced is a huge plus, as is the ability to interact with some of the most talented makers in North America. According to the ACC, 1,500 of the country’s top contemporary craft artists and attract more than 50,000 collectors and craft enthusiasts attend the shows. Would you like to be a part of this exciting event? The criteria for entering is as follows:
Submit five digital images to the annual jury by August 1, 2016 by midnight (PST) via Juried Art Services, the online application system. Each application will be given one jury score for all 2017 shows.
We encourage returning applicants to submit two to three images of new work. Marketing and promotional efforts focus on new pieces.
