How often do you get to walk into Brooklyn Museum and walk out with some of the art? Well, on November 22 and 23, you’ll get your chance. The American Fine Craft Show Brooklyn will be returning to Brooklyn Museum, just in time for you to get an early start on holiday shopping. And if you enter our contest below, you may even win a piece of art valued at $900!
The American Fine Craft Show Brooklyn will be held in the museum’s Beaux-Arts Court, featuring the works of over 90 exhibitors, including handmade ceramics, decorative and wearable fiber, furniture, glass, sculptures, jewelry, and leather apparel. There will be fashion by Patricia Palson, ceramics by Jerry Bennett Pottery, glass by Jeffrey P’an, furniture by Doug Meyer of Rustbelt Rebirth, and much more.
The show is a fantastic shopping opportunity for collectors and craft enthusiasts. The craft show will also serve as an ideal complement to the museum’s exhibition “Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond.” And because your ticket to the craft show includes general admission to the museum, you can also check out the special exhibition “Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe,” as well as the museum’s long-term exhibitions and permanent collections.
Over the years, founders Joanna and Richard Rothbard have brought us the American Fine Craft Show NYC, Contemporary Art Fair NYC, and the Rockefeller Arts Festival, as well as producing July’s Berkshires Arts Festival and the upcoming Sarasota Craft Show in December. With over 30 years of experience curating fine art and craft shows, the Rothbards have an eye for great work.
