Smithsonian Craft Show 2018

Preview Night

The Smithsonian Women’s Committee presents the 36th annual Smithsonian Craft Show, featuring 120 premier American artists chosen from a pool of approximately 1,000 applicants. For the first time, the show will highlight Asian cultural influence on American crafts. The show seeks to engage the public through educational and artistic components that complement the theme “Asian Influence/American Design." Serious collectors and casual visitors alike will find one-of-a-kind works of art in all price ranges. The selected works represent 12 media: basketry, ceramics, decorative fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, wearable art and wood. The Smithsonian Craft Show is produced by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee. Since 1966, the Committee has awarded nearly $12 million in competitive grants funded from proceeds of our craft shows to the Smithsonian’s 19 museums and galleries, nine research facilities, traveling exhibits and the National Zoo.
