Artisans of The Store @ ACG Posted December 13, 2017 by acgdirector


The Store @ ACG is a new retail space that sells functional fine crafts created by the skilled artisans of the Capital Region; housewares, ceramics, paper goods and jewelry are just some examples. Artisans in The Store will change on a quarterly basis and we are continually accepting submissions to be considered for The Store (click here to submit).

We are excited to share the first installment of artisans in The Store and hope you will join us on Friday, December 15 for the Grand Opening of The Store along with the Opening Reception for our Members’ Show, featuring 150+ local and regional artisans.
