Membership and Support

Since our founding in 1963, Piedmont Craftsmen has been made up of both makers and collectors of fine craft.

The makers are our Exhibiting Members, who must complete a rigorous two-part peer jury process before being offered Exhibiting Membership.  All exhibiting members may participate in the annual Fair, show in the Gallery and in exhibitions, be a part of educational programs, serve on the Board of Trustees, and volunteer on committees.

The collectors are our Supporting Members, who strengthen the organization through finanicial support and by volunteering for programs and committees, and serving on the Board of Trustees.

All of our members receive discounts in the Gallery and on-line shop, mail and email newsletters, invitations to all openings and events, and tickets to Preview Night of Piedmont Craftsmen's Fair.

Our Sponsors support us with cash and in-kind contributions for the Fair and other programs.


Piedmont Craftsmen is thankful for the support it receives from the following foundations, arts councils, and businesses :
