The 20th Annual Palm Beach Fine Craft Show is a juried exhibition and sale of contemporary American & International crafts and design being produced by the Palm Beach Show Group. The Palm Beach Fine Craft Show encourages artists to continue to grow and stretch the limits of their media. The Craft Show is committed to presenting the most thoughtful, original, and skilled American & International craft and design objects. The exploration of new technology has historically been a part of craft practice. The Palm Beach Fine Craft Show is looking for one-of-a-kind and limited edition objects that have been conceived and perfected by the artist's own hands and created in the artist’s studio. New technologies such as computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) are increasingly prevalent in the designing and/or making of contemporary studio crafts. Because organiser recognizes that new technologies are increasingly helpful in this process, it is acceptable to submit work in which CAD/CAM and other industrial techniques such as 3-D printing tools are used in the creative process. But it is not acceptable when these technologies are used to actually make the final product. Repurposed materials, including found objects, are being used as art material to make some craft pieces. This is a desirable practice, and artists who incorporate repurposed materials are encouraged to specify this in their statements.
Eligible media: Basketry, ceramics, decorative fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, wearable art, and wood.
Jurors who are experts in the field choose artists from a large pool of applicants. Previous exhibitors must re-apply each year. There is no quota for any category of Craft Art.
