Artrider Discontinues the CraftNewYork Show E-mail


Artrider Productions Inc. has announced that there will be no CraftNEWYORK in 2013. Artrider was recently informed by the owners of the 7W New York venue that they will not be holding any shows after January 2013. The building is owned by Vornado realty, the largest holder of commercial real estate in the world, who did not share their reasons for this decision.

CraftNEWYORK was a benefit for CERF+ (Craft Emergency Relief Fund + Artists' Emergency Resources). Stacey Jarit, director of Artrider,  said, “It is with a great sense of disappointment that we make this announcement. After two successful years there was a strong feeling among the craft community that the show had tremendous potential to become one of the leading lights of the crafts world but forces beyond our control have made this an impossibility. Artrider and CERF+ would like to thank all the artists and visitors who supported this event.”
