Alternatives Museum Shop
Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts (DCCA)

Wilmington, DE

Alternatives Museum Shop at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts (DCCA) is an eclectic retail gallery featuring an assortment of fine art jewelry, dazzling glass, artfully designed wooden objects, innovative ceramic vessels, hand-printed and bound papers and books, and a variety of wearable fibers for men and women of all ages. Alternatives Museum Shop was the recent recipient of NICHE Magazine’s 2009 Best Museum Store, and a 2010 NICHE nomination.

Works by regional and national artisans make up the collection of functional and decorative handmade items that have been individually selected for quality and innovative design as well as each artist’s contemporary approach to his/her craft. Each artist-made item is either a one-of-a-kind or limited production item. In addition to its core artists, the shop is an ever-evolving space that is enhanced by regular featured artist shows, national juried exhibitions, and curated work by top-level collegiate programs highlighting a variety of craft mediums.

Artists interested in submitting hand-crafted work for consignment opportunities in DCCA's Alternatives Museum Shop should contact Shop Manager Amy Milli Grosh with 3-4 images of work, suggested price range, artist biography, and artist statement. Please include a link to any websites or online stores your work is being featured in as well.
