2021 MCA GUILD FINE CRAFT SHOW SEASON!

Three MCA Guild Fine Crafts Shows are planned for 2021! We look forward to seeing you in Bar Harbor (our MDI show), Scarborough and Brunswick! The shows feature fine craft artists from the former Maine Crafts Guild juried membership and craft artists who have have been juried into the new Guild level of Maine Crafts Association membership. The shows will also include a selection of juried craft artists from the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen.

BACKGROUND

Beginning in 2020, the Maine Crafts Association assumed management of four fine craft shows previously managed by the Maine Crafts Guild. Of course, they were all cancelled due to COVID but we have brought three of the four back in 2021 on similar dates / locations as they have been held in the past. (See schedule to the left).

Our two organizations have joined together as one Maine craft organization offering all the programs, events and initiatives previously offered by each separate organization.

The intent of the shows, as it was under Maine Crafts Guild management, is to nurture a market place where the public can see, collect and learn about the highest quality craft objects made by Maine’s most dedicated, talented and trained craft artists who have mastered their tools, techniques and vision to create original fine craft objects for everyday use and special occasions.
