EASTON — The 22nd Academy Art Museum Craft Show, “Celebrating the Makers,” will continue from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, with a variety of the beautiful, unusual, astounding and always creative.
The indoor, juried show features 70 artists from across the United States whose work encompasses all craft media: basketry, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, metal, mixed media, sculpture, wood and even a few unlikely media.
This year’s Visionary Artist is Aaron Taylor Kuffner of Brooklyn, N.Y. Kuffner crafts sonic kinetic sculptures and stages site-specific installations around the world. His “Gamelatrons” create sanctuaries in public and private spaces. A Gamelatron is greeting visitors outside the Academy Art Museum.
Visitors can enjoy a docent-led tour of Kuffner’s work at 11 a.m. Sunday.
There also is an “Artist in Conversation” in the Maker’s Forum area at the Waterfowl Building various times Sunday and “Little Crafters” for children from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the museum building.
And if you think you’ve missed the boat, this year’s Craft Show has an online auction, running through Oct. 15. Participating artists are presenting a selection of their works in an online format that is shared nationally.
All proceeds from the Craft Show and from the online auction will go to the Academy Art Museum to support its many community-based programs for all ages.
Craft Show admission is free Sunday for all attendees in celebration of “Family Day.”
