American Craft Made Baltimore Marketplace
March 15-17, 2024, marks the return of the American Craft Council’s (ACC) flagship event at the Baltimore Convention Center, American Craft Made Baltimore Marketplace. The three-day, immersive event allows guests to celebrate all things handmade, by showcasing a juried selection of 350 artists from across the country and highlighting the work of local craft organizations, schools and partners.
Located in a new space within the Convention Center inside the Charles Street entrance, the marketplace provides a unique opportunity for collectors, supporters, and those who love and live with craft to explore and purchase quality handcrafted items from across the country. Attendees will enjoy meeting the creators of some of their favorite pieces while exploring various mediums such as ceramics, glass, jewelry, clothing, furniture, basketry and more.
Once again, this year’s marketplace highlights the Emerging Artists Program, an initiative facilitating the entry of early-career artists into ACC’s well-established craft marketplaces. This program offers lower-cost booths, extensive exhibitor support and opportunities for marketplace awards, providing emerging artists an unparalleled chance to expand their clientele and advance their careers. This year’s event will feature ACC’s School-to-Market program, serving as a bridge between higher education in craft and the marketplace. This program offers undergraduate and graduate students experience in a public venue for a curated, collective exhibition of their work, enhancing their visibility and connecting them with a broader audience.
