Dimensions 2019

 

Dimensions is the Saskatchewan Craft Council鈥檚 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 at the beginning of April, including a public viewing of all the works submitted, a Jurors鈥 Talk, and the Dimensions Public Critique Session. 219 pieces by 135 artists were submitted on April 2, 2019. Jurors Felicia Gay and Kye-Yeon Son selected 35 for Dimensions 2019.

Prizes 鈥 presented at an Awards Ceremony on May 31, 2019 鈥 celebrated excellence in craft media as well as outstanding works of creativity and innovation in craft.
