Not only are we continuing to register people to attend the upcoming summer week filled with small group discussion, demonstrations and seminars known as “Arts & Crafts In August” — registration has now officially opened for the exhibitor shows!

Like all online events we have hosted throughout 2021, we have provided an online exhibitor show free to the general public of collectors to shop. These shows will feature exhibitors — and demonstrators — near and dear to our GPI conference community of supporters. See the live – and still growing – list of exhibitors signed up to sell during the Arts & Crafts In August online shows by clicking the button below.

The live schedule is also available to view as we are scheduling the last of our live sessions and seminars in August. Click here to see the live schedule (or click the button above) and when you’re ready, you can register online on this website or call the office at (828) 628-1915 to register over the phone!

Never been to the Grove Park Inn?

The historic Grove Park Inn, now owned by Omni, is a perfect Arts & Crafts destination. Its interiors a tribute to the Arts and Crafts era of design, this Asheville historic hotel attracted the affluent and middle class of the early 20th Century with its reputation as a house of healing and comfort amidst the Blue Ridge Mountains. This tradition continues today as its one of a kind subterranean spa, its gorgeous sunset terrace views, and comforting natural interiors attracts visitors from all over, including many U.S. Presidents. View the video below to see Conference Director Emeritus Bruce Johnson give an Arts & Crafts tour of the iconic Grove Park Inn.

Meanwhile, please add yourself to our free weekly newsletter at, for we also make major conference announcements there as well.

Many thanks!

Bruce Johnson, Director Emeritus
