Every day thousands of American artists share their vision and talent by producing amazing hand-made decorative and functional objects. And every day thousands of craft retailers share their love of these items by displaying, promoting and selling them. As one craft artist put it, "this is the creative economy!"~ American Craft Week website
In many cities ACW is a pretty big deal and in Charleston...we are working on that. This year I am trying to rally the community. Local ceramic studio Cone 10 and Charleston Craft Cooperative are joining in this year and having events! I am asking Charleston area crafts people to submit a piece for a show at Surface entitled "Home" with the inspiration for the piece drawn from the idea of Home. Opening October 2nd, Home will be up the entire ACW through October 11.
Call for entries is posted now the Surface Craft Gallery Facebook page. Please "like" the page to keep up to date on the show as well as new work and news at Surface. Thank you for supporting handmade!
