Dimensions is the Saskatchewan Craft Council’s biennial, open, juried, touring exhibition which encourages and rewards excellence in hand crafted work. Every two years the Saskatchewan Craft Council invites all Saskatchewan craftspeople to submit up to two hand crafted items for Dimensions. Two qualified jurors are tasked with selecting the final pieces, as well as deciding which pieces merit any of the many available fine craft awards.
Multiple events took place throughout the week of jurying, including a public viewing of all the works submitted, a Jurors’ Talk, and the Dimensions Public Critique Session. 219 pieces by 135 artists were submitted on April 2nd. Jurors Felicia Gay and Kye-Yeon Son selected 35 for Dimensions 2019.
Prizes, presented at an Awards Ceremony following the jurying process, celebrate excellence in craft media as well as outstanding works of creativity and innovation in craft! Awards are presented to celebrate excellence in each craft medium as well as outstanding works of creativity and innovation.
