The MCA presents the fifth annual Portland Fine Craft Show on August 24, 2019, 9am – 5pm on Congress Street between High and State Streets, in Portland, Maine. The show is free and open to the public.
For the Fifth Anniversary, we’ve invited an exhibitor to collaborate with MCA in the creation of the Show’s visual identity. I am thrilled to announce that I was asked to lead the design and development of visual elements for the 2019 Portland Fine Craft Show in collaboration with Amanda Mitchell of Delany Arts.

The Portland Fine Craft Show features over 100 juried exhibitors from Maine and New England exhibiting fine craft in the following media categories: baskets, ceramics, fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, stone and wood, as well as outreach booth exhibiting the work of international artists new to Maine, booths featuring New England arts organizations, schools and guilds by special invitation, live music and food trucks in Longfellow Square. The Portland Fine Craft Show remains one of the only Maine craft shows open to artists not living in Maine, and has a reputation for being well-organized and high quality, with high attendance.
