The Surface Design Association invited 4 artists to show at the American Craft Council Show Baltimore. We were one of them. Here is an article with collected insights from the artists at the show.

In their quest to attract new talent, the American Craft Council gave several art/craft-focused organizations the opportunity to invite 10 of their members to bypass ACC’s jury process. 4 out of the 10 SDA invited took us up on the offer by participating in the 2012 Baltimore ACC Show in February.
With over 650 juried artists, the Baltimore show is a bit overwhelming. For the visitor, there is no shortage of interesting and inspiring new work. For the exhibitor, however, there are some challenges involved in putting yourself out there. Jiyoung Chung, Tamara Embrey, Jenne Giles and Deborah Kruger shared some insights into their experience of working this venue below.

It was a busy week at the ACC Baltimore Show!
I had an amazing time: meeting many new artists, including a number of outstanding feltmakers which made it super “awesome” (my new favorite word), and also reconnecting with friends from previous shows. I had a great time sharing the booth with my friend, Heidi. It was nice to share the experience and made the whole trip much more meaningful! Here is a picture that she took of me demonstrating my wares.
Back home now and catching up. CraftBoston is not too far away….
