70 New Artists to Exhibit in Show

The Morristown CraftMarket, now celebrating its 42nd consecutive year as a nationally acclaimed and charitable fine art and craft show featuring 160 gifted artists from over 25 states throughout the country, will be held Friday, October 19 through Sunday, October 21 at the Morristown Armory, 430 Western Avenue, Morristown, NJ.

“For four decades, the Morristown CraftMarket has received acclaim as a major cultural and charitable event not only in New Jersey but throughout our nation,” said Show Director Geoffrey Price, a member of the not-for-profit and all-volunteer Kiwanis Club of Randolph Township, NJ which sponsors and runs the Morristown CraftMarket.

“The thousands of patrons who come each year to our show at the Morristown Armory know that we showcase extraordinary, one-of-a-kind and limited edition fine arts and crafts - all made in America by American hands - and that all our profits go to charities,” said Price.

The exhibiting artists will display and sell their original and magnificent creations in jewelry, leather, ceramics, metal, glass, wood, furniture, mixed media, wearable fiber and more.

This year 70 new exhibitors were chosen to exhibit in the Morristown CraftMarket by a panel of peer artists who judge and score applications submitted by gifted artists from throughout the nation.

Opening Night Reception

The Morristown CraftMarket will host an Opening Night Reception on Friday, October 19th, from 5pm - 8pm, for patrons who are at least 21 years old. Beer and wine will be sold.

Silent Auction to Benefit Sam’s NICU

For the third consecutive year, the Show will hold a Silent Auction in loving memory of Robert James (“RJ”) Nelson, III, a brave baby boy who was born 13 1/2 weeks premature and fought hard for the right to live for 82 days.

The Silent Auction will put the spotlight on premature birth, which is a national health crisis. Proceeds from the Silent Auction will benefit the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Morristown Medical Center ("Sam’s NICU”), which helps premature babies and their families.

The Silent Auction will conclude at 5pm on Sunday, October 21. Winners will be notified and need not be present.
