I'm so excited for this year's ACC show at the Baltimore Convention Center. I'm planning on stopping by tomorrow or Friday. My intern Nikki did some research on ACC's 34th annual retail show. The show runs until February 28th and is the largest juried, indoor craft show in the nation with over 700 artists. Admission is $15 per day, with a special $6 after 6pm price on Friday. Vendors come from all over the country to show off their talents and sell their crafts—but there are a lot of locals too.
Here's a round-up:
Ceramic artists Ronni Aronin, Tinne Debruijne, and Lenore Lampi, will have their work on display, as well as furniture from Len Dougherty, and John Gutierrez. Fabulous artwork in mixed media can be found at the booths of Susan Fleischer (Casual Elegance), Suzanne Herbert-Forton, and Elan Smadar Livne (Livne Fine Art Studio). Along with hand-crafted items for the home, you can also browse fun organic children’s clothing at Sweet Pepita. There are many unique jewelry booths to check out as well. There will be metal jewelry by Hilary Hachey, Rebecca Myers, and Theresa Carson Jewelry, enameled pieces by Shana Kroiz, and non-metal treasures by Lauren Schlossberg. Other vendors include glass works bv Gayla Lee, decorative fiber by Susan Levi-Goerlich (Stitched Impressions), and metal work by David Bacharach (Bacharach Metalsmiths.) Stop by and give them the secret handshake. —JED
