The Celebration of American Crafts is an annual juried exhibition and sale sponsored by CAW. The exhibition is held in CAW's handsome two-story Hilles Gallery.

A prestigious showcase for professional craft artists, the Celebration presents fine contemporary American crafts in every medium. To maintain the high quality of the Celebration, the acceptance process is very selective, with a limited number of exhibitors chosen to represent each medium. The Celebration attracts nearly 10,000 visitors from all over the Northeast, and media coverage is extensive. Work is sold on a consignment basis, and CAW retains 40% of each sale. These funds go toward the support of the community art school.

Call for Volunteers
CAW needs volunteers to help staff this event. Volunteer while surrounded by fine crafts from across America! Volunteers are needed to help clerk the exhibition and sale in November and December. If interested, please call (203) 562-4927 x12 or email
