The Creative Crafts Council (CCC) celebrates its 31st biennial exhibition supporting the finest crafts from Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC. The first biennial had bold beginnings as the Exhibition of Creative Arts at the National Collection of Fine Arts, now known as the National Museum of American Art, and today continues a long tradition of exhibiting at Strathmore Mansion.

The CCC is made up of the Potters Guild of Frederick, Washington Ceramic Guild, Washington Guild of Goldsmiths, Fiber Art Study Group, Capital Area Woodturners, Potomac Fiber Arts Guild, Montgomery County Woodturners, National Capital Art Glass Guild, The Kiln Club, Montgomery Potters, and National Enamelist Guild. In this 31st annual juried exhibition, you will see traditional media from these guilds and beyond, representing excellence in fiber, enamel, wood, glass, ceramics, metals, and mixed media.
