Crafts at the Cathedral, a fine juried crafts show that benefits the work of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine and its congregation is moving this year into the Cathedral itself after twenty successful years in Synod Hall. We will be filling the center of the nave of the world’s largest gothic cathedral with artists and who will be showing and selling their own exquisitely made work! The nave of the cathedral is of enormous scale and beauty. The floors of green Vermont slate, the soaring columns, the gothic arches, spectacular stained glass windows--St John the Divine is overwhelming in its beauty. What better location to show off your work?
The Cathedral is a prime tourist destination. Situated on the bustling Upper West Side just south of Columbia University, Teacher’s College, Jewish and Union Theological Seminaries and the Manhattan School of Music, visits are highest during the holiday season. By moving this successful and beloved show into the Cathedral and not charging an admission fee, we will take advantage of this high foot traffic, more than doubling attendance at the show. Moving to the Cathedral also allows us to expand the show from the 56 spaces in Synod Hall to at least 84 spaces.
21st Annual Crafts at the Cathedral
Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, New York City
Thursday, November 30 - Saturday, December 2, 2017
We are thrilled to announce that Crafts at the Cathedral, a fine juried crafts show that benefits the work of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine and its congregation is moving this year into the Cathedral itself. We will be filling the center of the nave of the world’s largest gothic cathedral with artists who will be showing and selling their own exquisitely made work!
In medieval Europe, the Cathedral served as the center of not just religious life in a town, but often the civic and commercial life, too. Guilds met, degrees were bestowed, craftsmen sought employment, and commerce was conducted in the naves of many great Cathedrals. Wine merchants in 12th century Chartres and numerous other cities cleverly escaped local taxes by selling their wares from within the walls of the city's Cathedral. Some Cathedrals even had different sections of their naves set aside for different types of merchants — textiles in one corner, food in another, etc. The Cathedral Church at St. John the Divine is honoring that tradition!
The show is open to North American artists/artisans in all media who design and produce their own work. Imports, commercially mass-produced items, T-shirts, items produced from kits and assembled beads will not be accepted.
