Smart Bets: Arts & Crafts Conference and Antiques Show

Now in its 27th year, the annual Arts & Crafts Conference provides a long weekend’s worth of exhibitions, seminars, speakers and presentations. Learn about the pottery, rugs, artwork, jewelry and textiles created during the Arts and Crafts movement, which flourished between 1860 and 1910. Asheville is the Arts and Crafts capital of the South, according to conference director Bruce Johnson. Locals interested in the design style can pick up antiques and reproductions at the conference’s companion antiques show, held at the Omni Grove Park Inn on Friday, Feb. 21, 1-6 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 22, noon-6 p.m.; and Sunday, Feb. 23, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. $10 for all three days.
