Artcraft 50: The Guilds
A group show featuring new works by the arts and crafts guilds of Salt Spring:
Potters, Basketmakers, Jewellers, Weavers and Painters.
The arts and crafts guilds have been associated with the show at Mahon Hall since the 1970s and their involvement is being recognised with the first Showcase of the summer, opening that same night and running until July 4th. It features new and wonderful work by the Potters, Jewellers, Painters, Weavers and Basketmakers guilds. In some ways it will be a smaller, more condensed and more dramatic Artcraft on the stage. The Guilds were all encouraged to produce exciting new works, to show off the incredible talent that calls these islands home. One of the most common things that staff at Artcraft hear is amazement at the incredible quality and diversity of work by so many talented people. The Showcase should shine a spotlight on exactly that.
