JRA Distinguished Artist Series

Each year, the James Renwick Alliance sponsors a Craft Workshop Series. Craft artists who are prominent in their fields will conduct workshops and give lectures. The lectures at the Renwick Gallery are co-sponsored by the James Renwick Alliance and the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Smithsonian Institution.

The Alliance continues to partner with other regional arts organizations that host workshops in their premises. Locations are noted in workshop descriptions. All workshops are fee based, and all talks are free and open to the public.  A dinner with the artist is included as part of each program.

Workshops are $30 for members, $40 for non members. The subscription cost for all four programs is $100 for JRA members and $140 for non-members. To register for the workshops, please return the REGISTRATION FORM to the JRA Office.
