April 25, 2002|By Lori Sears

Looking for a nifty knickknack? A unique ceramic piece? Some handmade jewelry? You'll find them, and much more, at the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington today through Sunday. The show, in its 20th year, brings together 120 craft artists from all across the country, selected by jury from nearly 1,400 applicants.

On exhibit will be furniture, decorative-fiber works, basketry, ceramics, glass pieces, jewelry, paper goods, wood works, metal pieces, leather goods, wearable art and mixed-media works.

Four of the artists, including metalsmith David Paul Bacharach of Cockeysville, participated in the show's first event in 1983. Other Maryland participants include (first-time exhibiting) ceramics artists Mark and Jennifer Hatfield of Frederick and furniture-maker Stephen Perrin of Timonium.

The Smithsonian Craft Show runs 10 a.m.-8 p.m. today and tomorrow, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday at the National Building Museum, 401 F St. N.W., Washington. $12; free for ages under 12. Call 202-357-4000.
