The Art by Craft Exhibit is a collection of works that are created with or explore traditional craft techniques and concepts in the form of fine art. We are asking you to explore a craft based medium in the context of fine art, in other worlds elevating a medium traditionally known as craft to the level of fine art. Pieces can be in a variety of mediums, but must directly relate to craft in some way.

The Denver Handmade Alliance and the Center for Visual Art are curating the exhibit with the aim of showcasing the art of local and regional handmade artists.
