Craft Expo 2019 will feature a new "emerging
artist" category this year. This category was established to provide access to a
professional show for early-career artists, helping to grow their clientele and
careers. Over 15 brand new emerging artists will exhibit at Craft Expo, injecting
a fresh wave of talent across a multitude of craft mediums.
Additionally, there are other activities that
will interest and entertain attendees, including a Family Art Tent for young
visitors, silent auction of exhibitor-donated work, live craft demonstrations
by Guilford Art Center faculty and students, and sale of Guilford Art Center
student work. Attendees can enjoy a snack or meal in the food truck area, which
will also feature live musical entertainment throughout the weekend.
