Calls For Entry

Alberta Craft Council has a couple of upcoming calls for entry:

Minutiae, a Big Celebration of the Little Things

Alberta Craft is calling Craft artists working on a miniature scale to submit work for the upcoming Feature Gallery exhibition, Minutiae, a Big Celebration of the Little Things.

Does working small and paying attention to all the teeny, tiny details sound like your creative process? Are the objects you make intended for intimate consideration and contemplation? Do you crave to recreate the world around you at 1:12 its actual size?

What does minutiae mean to you? Toy? Secret? Efficient? Intimate? Cute? Details? Whether you are a dedicated miniaturist, or if this call has inspired you to shrink the scale of what you make for the first time, we want to hear from you!

Applications will be accepted until January 16, 2024 at 11:59pm MT.

Coming Up Next

Coming Up Next celebrates the creativity, innovation, and skill of emerging artists entering the field of contemporary Craft in Canada. This group exhibition serves as an important launchpad; introducing emerging artists to the Alberta Craft community (including our sophisticated audience of artists, craft collectors and supporters), and to the professional development services that Alberta Craft provides to its members. The exhibition will be curated to feature a diverse representation of traditional and contemporary Craft disciplines.

We welcome submissions from artists whose path to Craft may have begun through apprenticeships, mentorships with elders, those who are self-taught, and those who have received a formal post-secondary Craft education. If you are within the first five years of your career in Craft, or the final year of studies in a Craft discipline, you are eligible to enter.

This national call is free to enter, with a submission of up to five images of work that will be available for the exhibition dates. Works may be produced in any of the Craft media: clay, fibre, glass, metal, wood, stone, or any combination of the above, and must have been completed within the past two years to be considered.
