Knowing that the covid pandemic would prevent some Arts and Crafts collectors from attending the live 35th National Arts and Crafts Conference and Shows at the historic 1913 Grove Park Inn, we simultaneously began making plans to make available video recordings of the six seminar presentations. We also are making available a walking tour of the Grove Park Inn and of Biltmore Industries. In addition, Virtual Conference Replay subscribers will be able to watch the first behind-the-scenes videos of the Contemporary Craftsfirms Show and the Antiques Show taken just minutes before the shows opened, and will receive a PDF and printed copy of the Conference Catalog.

Here, then, is a description of what you will see — and learn — at the Virtual Conference Replay:

Behind the Scenes Tours of the

National Arts and Crafts Conference Shows:

The 2022 Antiques Show and Contemporary Craftsfirms Show

Filmed by William Murphy.

Narrated by Bruce Johnson.

Minutes prior to the opening of the two shows, we recorded a stroll through the booths of the antiques dealers and the contemporary craftsfirms, even as they were putting the finishing touches on their booths. Conference director Bruce Johnson recorded the narrative over the video, giving you an even greater insight into all of the wonderful pieces which had been assembled for the show.
