42nd Annual Morristown Craftmarket Set At Armory

The Morristown CraftMarket, now celebrating its 42nd consecutive year as a nationally acclaimed and charitable fine art and craft show featuring 160 gifted artists from more than 25 states throughout the country, is set to be held Friday, Oct. 19 through Sunday, Oct. 21 at the Morristown Armory, Morristown.
Show hours are: Friday, Oct. 19, 5 p.m. to 9pm; Saturday, Oct. 20, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 21, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“For four decades, the Morristown CraftMarket has received acclaim as a major cultural and charitable event not only in New Jersey but throughout our nation,”
said Show Director Geoffrey Price, a member of the not-for-profit and all- volunteer Kiwanis Club of Randolph Township, which sponsors the event.
“The thousands of patrons who come each year to our show at the Morristown Armory know that we showcase extraordinary, one-of-a-kind and limited edition fine arts and crafts – all made in America by American hands – and that all our profits go to charities,” said Price.
The exhibiting artists will display and sell their original and magnificent creations in jewelry, leather, ceramics, metal, glass, wood, furniture, mixed media, wearable fiber and more.
A Silent Auction will be run throughout the show in loving memory of Robert James “RJ” Nelson, III, a brave baby boy who was born 13 1/2 weeks premature and fought hard for the right to live for 82 days, April 6- June 27, 2016.
The Silent Auction will put the spotlight on premature birth, which the March of Dimes calls “the leading cause of death of babies in the U.S.” Proceeds from the Silent Auction will benefit the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Morristown Medical Center (“Sam’s NICU”), which helps premature babies and their families.
The Silent Auction will conclude on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 5 p.m. Winners need not be present.
