October 20-22
Buffalo, NY
New York State Arts and Crafts Alliance
This international conference will zero in on how and why the Buffalo region became the national capital for design, production, and innovation in American Arts and Crafts. With the region’s wealth of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, The Roycroft Campus, Charles Rohlfs, The Larkin Company, Buffalo Pottery, The Arts and Crafts Shop, Stickley, Heintz Art Metal, Adelaide Robineau, Karl Kipp, Walrath Pottery and so many others, no other region of the country can claim the density of local production. In contrast to the British variant, many members of this Buffalo School of Arts and Crafts freely used the region’s technological prowess to achieve a seamless melding of industrial techniques and handcrafted design, detail and quality—the signature of American Arts and Crafts.
