Tennessee Craft seeks entries for the 2024 Best of Tennessee Craft Exhibition, a biennial event designed to highlight craft artists producing the most diverse, highest-quality craft pieces available in Tennessee.

Presented by Tennessee Craft – the state’s largest, most visible, and most respected craft artist organization – and hosted by the Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN. This exhibit elevates and celebrates contemporary and traditional craft found throughout Tennessee while encouraging a high standard of excellence and design among Tennessee craft artists.

The exhibition will be on view at the Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts in Gatlinburg from October 14, 2024 through Sunday, December 13, 2024. Visitors can expect to see such craft as traditional Appalachian-inspired furniture, textiles incorporating modern materials and time-honored techniques, and extraordinary turned pieces using found wood. The guest juror will select works for the exhibition from submitted entries and the award winners. Best of Show Award is a $1,500 cash award.
