Making: A Career in Craft is now open at the Alberta Craft Gallery, Calgary, in cSpace (the former King Edward School). Show runs September 19 - November 7, 2020
Cory Barkman and I are showing a small Plum Blossom screen, and I have three new chased and repousséd flower pendant necklaces. See more images here.
Artists have contributed background writing for the show, sharing aspects of what they have learned from a career dedicated to making their art and fine craft work. I found it a really interesting read, and a great way to connect with some artists that I do not know personally:
The "Making" group exhibition first opened on February 1, 2020 in the Feature Gallery in Edmonton ...And then sadly had to shut down pretty much straightaway because of you-know-what.
I had two pieces of chased and repousséd metalwork on show in Edmonton: one is, frankly, cute and adorable (shown in the catalogue), the other is (still!) vaguely terrifying...
