What is American Craft Week?
It's an opportunity to celebrate the
wonders of American craft. Every day thousands of American artists share
their vision and talent by producing amazing hand-made decorative and
functional objects. And every day Smith Galleries shares its love of
these items by displaying, promoting and selling them.
As one craft
artist put it, "this is the creative economy!"
American Craft enriches
our homes, wardrobes, offices and public spaces. It contributes to our
nation's economy, our balance of trade, and the fabric of our national
history. It is original, beautiful and enduring,
so let's make it a part of
