Delaware & American Craft Week Kicks Off Tomorrow!

Celebrating artisans and art organizations throughout the state of Delaware who enrich and contribute to the economic fabric and vibrancy of Delaware.

In this month of celebrating arts and humanities, Delaware is prepped to welcome American Craft Week! What began as a small, grassroots effort to enhance the knowledge and appreciation of handmade craft now celebrates its fifth anniversary. American Craft Week is a well-established, national event celebrating the tradition of American craft in artists' studios, galleries, museums, schools, and festivals.

In celebration of craft in America, American Craft Week will present a Masterpiece exhibit and sale -- an online exhibition featuring one-of-a-kind work by one exceptional craft artists from each of the 50 states and Washington, DC.
An architect who creates wearable art, Arden Bardol of Dover will represent Delaware in this nationwide event. The exhibition will be available online now through October 11.

Delaware's 2015 Individual Artist Fellow in Craft, James Ulry, will have an exhibit at the Dover Art League during October, and events will be held throughout Delaware in celebration of American and Delaware Craft Weeks.

Listen here to the WILM "State of the Arts" Podcast interview with Esther Lovlie, Lorin Felter and Hilary LaMotte Burke about Delaware Craft Week, all of whom were instrumental in getting Delaware Craft Week into the public's consciousness.
