ACC Baltimore 2016

Has it been a year already? Once again I will be a special SNAG Invitational Artist at the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore. I’ll have almost all of my holloware, sculptures, and wall pieces at BOOTH #875 for you to see, talk with me about, and of course buy and take home with you!

AMERICAN CRAFT BALTIMORE SHOW

Feb. 19–21 at the Baltimore Convention Center

Look at my pretty new booth set-up! I got compliments on this as well as my art!
Last year’s ACC Booth. This year stop by BOOTH #875

Join us for three days of festivities celebrating all things handmade! More than 650 top contemporary jewelry, clothing, furniture, and home décor artists from across the country will gather under one roof. It’s your chance to touch, feel, and explore high-quality American craft and meet the makers behind the fabulous work. This is the American Craft Council’s flagship show – a must-attend for craft lovers.

Plus, meet the country’s top emerging artists! Stop by our Hip Pop pods dotting the show floor to see their contemporary pieces, ranging from sophisticated elegance to cutting edge. Look for the pink and black Hip Pop logo to locate these fresh finds.
