The Morristown CraftMarket
The Morristown CraftMarket is one of the nationís longest running and most successful fine art and craft shows. The featured artists, selected in a juried competition, will display extraordinary, one-of-a-kind works in jewelry, ceramics, glass, leather, wood, metal, wearable fiber, and more. Many of the artists return annually to the Morristown CraftMarket bringing their one-of-a-kind, critically acclaimed pieces to a loyal and discerning audience drawn from the Northeast.
Held in Morris County, the Morristown CraftMarket is an annual show of artistic, yet functional, craft items. Each year, thousands of artists are invited to display, first by offering digital images of their work to a jury of their peers. All artists in the 2016 show will be chosen by this jury with the exception of exempted members of our jury and up to twelve artists who may be included for purposes of show balance. The jury then selects approximately 145 artists who will be invited to participate in the 40th annual Morristown CraftMarket.
The show is run by the Kiwanis Club of Randolph Township. Literally thousands of volunteer hours are put into the planning and management of the CraftMarket. All net proceeds of the show benefit local charities.
