The annual show and sale remains the largest event in the Midwest region featuring mission furniture and accessories of the American Arts and Crafts Movement; among the selections offered to the excited showgoers are metalwork, pottery, textiles, art, furniture and lighting. With at least 25 exhibitors scheduled for the 2023 show, the show organizers, Brian Smith and Cameron Quintal, will make their return to the Fine Arts Building at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul, Minnesota September 23rd and 24th.
For over two decades attendees and exhibitors have ardently supported the Twin Cities Show, helping it grow into the largest and longest running event in the Midwest dedicated to the furniture and accessories of The American Arts & Crafts Movement.
This year’s Twin Cities Arts & Crafts 20 Century Design Show and Sale is once again excited to have some of the foremost galleries, crafts people and dealers in the country. Offering a rare opportunity to compare and contrast some of the best examples of Arts & Crafts handiwork, all at one time and all in one building. The shows will return to the Fine Arts Building at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, the same location as in recent years, an advantage to dealers with framed works to sell. “The Fine Arts Building gives our vendors an opportunity to showcase framed items such as art and other hanging items in a more intimate setting.”
In addition to Eastwood Gallery, a number of Antiques providers are scheduled to sell at the shows include Twentieth Century Art & Design, Christine L. Boone Antiques, Jason Krohn Antiques, Kindred Styles Antiques, Dard Hunter Studios, George Sorensen Antiques, Master Framers, David Heide Design Studio, among others. Please see the website for a complete list.
The show is all under one roof and one weekend only, Saturday, September 23rd from 10am – 5pm and Sunday, September 24th from 10am – 3pm at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, Fine Arts Building. You’ll find furniture, metalwork, pottery, textiles, art and lighting; everything from Stickley, Limbert, Roycroft, and Rookwood, to the esteemed Minneapolis Handicraft Guild.
