For a juried exhibition of American contemporary craft, attend the 22nd annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show today through Sunday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The work of 195 craftspeople, selected from more than 1,600 applicants, will be on display, including basketry, ceramics, decorative fiber, wearable fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper and wood.

An installation of whimsical, beautiful and fantastical masks also is part of this year's show. All masks are created in each artist's medium, including leather, ceramic and glass.

Another exhibit, "Living with Crafts," focuses on the use and display of contemporary craft art in the home. The display includes a dining room with extraordinary table settings, a child's fanciful bedroom, and a sunny solarium.

The show site is at 12th and Arch streets. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. today and Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. Admission is $10, $3 for children under 12. Call 215-684-7930.
