The Art Providence Show was created in 2017 to replace RISD\'s well-loved, long-running annual holiday sale upon its cancellation. While maintaining the same location and much of the pre-existing audience, the show differs from RISD\'s in that it is juried and applications are open to all artists/makers/designers working in the included categories – including but not limited to RISD alumni.  The new format has received rave reviews and swiftly gained a reputation for attracting some of the country’s top artists, artisans, and designers. This year\'s show will take place November 8-10  at the RI Convention Center in downtown Providence. It\'s a month earlier than normal, so mark your calendar!

Over 150 artists, makers and designers will be showing and selling their work - including but not limited to RISD alumni, who come from throughout New England and beyond.  In the spirit of similar shows run by the American Craft Council, CraftBoston and other premier art and craft institutions, Art Providence Show artists’ work has been juried by a panel of experts active in art, craft and design. Show categories include ceramics, jewelry, painting, furniture, apparel and more.

By popular demand, we\'ll be bringing back the Local Food Favorites sampling area and the Kids Corner art activity area. A portion the proceeds supports Providence CityArts for Youth.

Whether you\'re a collector seeking new works to add to your collection, an interior designer looking for fresh ideas, or a holiday shopper wanting to get a jump on the shopping season, this show is sure to have something for you.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
