Morven in May, one of New Jersey’s most anticipated spring rituals, is a juried exhibition and sale of contemporary, American-made fine craft. The museum brings together 36 professional fine craft artists from around the U.S., all working at the highest levels in their respective medium, including decorative and wearable textiles, jewelry, furniture, ceramics, glass, metal, and more. Their work will be displayed in gallery-style booths under a grand tent on the Great Lawn at Morven Museum and Garden, 55 Stockton Street, Saturday, May 7, 10 a.m. — 5 p.m., and Sunday, May 8, 10 a.m. — 4 p.m.

Along with the beautifully crafted art objects, Morven offers for sale a distinct collection of plants for your garden. These include fragrant heirloom flowers, unique new varieties of annuals and perennials, carefully chosen flowering shrubs, and select plants propagated from Morven’s own garden.

Craft show admission is $10 per person, $8 for Friends of Morven, and free for children 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased prior to the event at www.morven.org or at the tent entrance during Morven in May Weekend.

The weekend begins on the Great Lawn with a Friday evening preview party, and then opens to the public for two days of art and garden treasure hunting. For the entire list of weekend events, visit Morven’s website or call (609) 924-8144.
