We are calling out for submissions from Associate Members (AMs) and Accredited Professional Members (APMs) for our 2018 Members Show. This is an important feature in our annual calendar, showcasing the skills and talents of our membership.
Last year's members exhibition, City of Design, was the largest members exhibition ever presented by Craft ACT and showcased 58 artists and more than 80 works. It received critical acclaim in media coverage: Kerry-Anne Cousins described the exhibition as
‘an impressive roll call of artists who live and work in the Canberra region. If you want to know who the artists to watch are as well as what is happening in contemporary object-based practice, then this is the exhibition to visit.’ (Fairfax papers, 13 October 2017).
We hope that this year’s exhibition will achieve the same level of success and community support, to reflect the excellent work and deep engagement with contemporary craft and design in the Canberra region.
As we did last year, we invite you to submit images of two different pieces proposed for the exhibition in the Craft ACT gallery. This will help Craft ACT to thoughtfully curate the exhibition and present your work at its best. These two works can be a single object or a small series (in case of works larger than 1m in any direction, please contact us to discuss).
The final deadline for submissions is 26 July 2018.
We have a new Gallery Manager, Paula Llull, and she is happy to answer any questions that you might have or discuss your submission.
We are also calling for volunteers to assist with installing and demounting, and will appreciate the promotion of the exhibition through your social media and professional/personal networks.
Please see the online submission for more details on key dates and how to submit.
