This year we are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Dimensions.  To promote this milestone we are presenting, for the first time, an exhibition of works submitted for Dimensions jurying, entitled The Jury’s Out.
Dimensions is selected by curators and craftspeople with jurying experience, who are masters in their own discipline, and who are also well versed in various mediums.  The Saskatchewan Craft Council (SCC) selects one juror from the province and one juror from outside the province and charges the jury to select 35 of the best pieces submitted.  The result has always been a spectacular exhibition representing Fine Craft from Saskatchewan.
Jurying is about the process of ‘seeing’, and jurors have this expertise because they have honed and exercised this ability.  But what really happens within the jurying process?  What sorts of discussions take place?  How are the final decisions made?
While this exhibition is in the gallery we have set up events to discuss how jurors make decisions.  Hopefully this will enable SCC members, the arts and craft community and the public to better understand this delicate process.
