The Fine Craft Shows at Chautauqua, sponsored by Crafts Alliance, Inc., have become one of the most prestigious small fine craft shows on the East Coast.
About the Shows
The Shows are limited to 80 participants who set up their displays in the lovely vicinity of the Bestor Plaza at Chautauqua Institution. The public in attendance delight in the singularly high quality of the work presented, while the artists enjoy interacting with an appreciative clientele. Each year thousands of shoppers, both residents of the Chautauqua and day guests, peruse the craft shows.
