Beginning in 2020, the Maine Crafts Association will manage four fine craft shows previously managed by the Maine Crafts Guild. The shows will feature fine craft artists from the Maine Crafts Guild juried membership and craft artists who have have been juried into the new Guild level of membership by the MCA. The shows will also likely include a selection of juried craft artists from the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen.
There will be more information about the jury process available in late 2019 / early 2020, the process and standards will be similar to the those used by the Maine Crafts Guild. The intent of the shows, as it has been under Guild management, is to nurture a market place where the public can see, collect and learn about the highest quality handmade craft objects made by Maine’s most dedicated, talented and trained craft artists who have mastered their tools, techniques and vision to create one-of-a-kind fine objects for everyday use and family heirlooms.
Planning for 2020
Exact show dates, specifics and venue contracts are pending and will be updated here as they are confirmed. The MCA 2020 show plan is to offer the same four shows in the same four locations on the same dates as they were offered by the Maine Crafts Guild in 2019 (as well as previous years).
