ACADEMY CRAFT SHOW
October 20-22, 2017
The Eastern Shore’s only juried craft show.
Can it really be 20 years since the Academy Art Museum gave birth to the first Craft Show, introducing our community to beautiful American crafts that normally were seen only on ‘the Western Shore’? The first Craft Show gave birth to an event that now highlights 70 artists, each recognized locally and nationally as being the best of the best. What started out as an idea is now one of the Academy’s most successful and joyful events for attendees, local businesses, and, importantly, the artists. Treasures exemplifying quality at every price point, allowing each attendee to find that special piece of art! In addition, we attract Talbot County residents as well as guests who return for their annual weekend getaways.

Bennett Bean is a quintessential American polymath. He is best known as a ceramic artist (for his treatment of vessels post firing); but works in a range of media including stone, precious metals, wool and silk weaving, paper, parchment and painting. He was formally trained in fine art and has been making things, prolifically, since 1960, full time in studio for that last 25 years. His work is represented by numerous galleries as well as in major museum collections nationwide including the Whitney Museum of American Art and the White House Art Collection.
