Emerging Artists

WinterGreen Fine Craft Market, November 17 – 19, 2017

Emerging Artist Applications NOW OPEN  Applications due September 7, 2017

 

The SCC is offering 1 year free membership with the purchase of a WinterGreen Emerging Artist booth!

WinterGreen is the SCC’s largest market, held at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina, and featuring a tremendous selection of beautiful hand-crafted work by over 70 Juried craft and visual artists. Saskatchewan Craft Council markets are organized this way to foster an environment where excellence in craft is nurtured, recognized and valued.  The SCC is also committed to aiding Saskatchewan craft artists to flourish creatively and economically. The SCC values education, mentorship and a supportive community of craft people.

In order to achieve these ends, the SCC is inviting emerging craft artists to participate in WinterGreen in order to experience the market environment first hand and expand their contacts with the Saskatchewan craft community.

The Emerging Artist Market Experience program gives artists in the first 5 years of their professional career the opportunity to participate in an SCC market for a reduced booth fee and free one year membership, without the need to be juried. There is a selection process; however the formal jury process is bypassed in order to introduce potential marketing members to SCC markets. Emerging Artist participants will become SCC members free of charge for their first year attending WinterGreen.

In order to qualify to take part in this initiative one must:

  • Be or become an SCC member (Professional, Affiliated, Craftsperson or Student category)
  • Have less than 5 years craft market experience
  • Be committed to pursuing a career in craft

Program Details:
