As you pointed well, if you were painting in a canvas, you'll be considered an "artist". Your questions isn't stupid -some definitions are. Some people consider crafts a kind of "minor" art. But what's a minor art? The gold coins that are gleaming in the Greek aisle of the Metropolitan Museum of New York is a "craft" or is an "art" (you can consider it an old commodity, too). So, given that there is not such a thin line, why don't enjoy both worlds? After all, you were already invited. And for those shows where you aren't, well, they know what they're missing.
