Arts & Crafts In August

August 17th – 23rd, 2024
Online at

Born in 2021, Arts & Crafts In August provides the chance for Arts & Crafts collectors to convene again to continue the ongoing revival and the study of the Arts & Crafts movement. Much like our annual National Conference and Shows at the Grove Park Inn, we’re scheduling Zoom seminars, house tours, demonstrations, and discussion sessions starting in mid-August for our collectors to enjoy anywhere live or accessible through our Video on Demand library to our registered attendees.

For Arts & Crafts In August, we are incorporating special presentations on the origins of the movement by studying the Glasgow style, the landscape legacy of Gertrude Jeykll and Edward Lutyens, John Ruskin and William Morris. Presentations will also include the Early Art Glass of William Lees Judson of Los Angeles’ Judson Studios, the Women Art Metalworkers of Boston with curator Jeannine Falino, an important Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms update with Vonda Givens, and at least three historic house tours! The full schedule will be released in the coming weeks, but you can get your early bird rate of $80.00 today through July 19th.

The early bird rate for the events pass includes links to the live sessions and recordings found on our Video on Demand library accessible to registered events pass holders. Recordings will be available to registered attendees through November 30th.

There’s more to come, so stay tuned!

Never been to the Grove Park Inn?

The historic Grove Park Inn, now owned by Omni, is a perfect Arts & Crafts destination. Its interiors a tribute to the Arts and Crafts era of design, this Asheville historic hotel attracted the affluent and middle class of the early 20th Century with its reputation as a house of healing and comfort amidst the Blue Ridge Mountains. This tradition continues today as its one of a kind subterranean spa, its gorgeous sunset terrace views, and comforting natural interiors attracts visitors from all over, including many U.S. Presidents.

See the videos above for special virtual tours of the shows. Bruce is your guide (along with our trusty cameraman Bill) as he walks through the 8th floor of the Vanderbilt Wing, presenting the 2022 Antiques and Contemporary Craftsfirms Shows.

If you’d like to hear a special presentation by Bruce on the Antiques of the Grove Park Inn, watch this video below.
