SCC 40th Anniversary Show & Sale opens at Affinity Gallery
The Saskatchewan Craft Council (SCC) is pleased to present the SCC 40th Anniversary Show & Sale, July 17 to August 29 at the SCCâ€™s Affinity Gallery on Broadway Avenue in Saskatoon. This exhibition features a display of Fine Craft highlighting and celebrating the work of our members. All pieces in the exhibition are for sale, and available to the collector immediately upon payment. The show includes Fine Craft work in fibre, ceramics, photography, wood, metal, glass, and visual art by more than 50 SCC artists.
The SCC 40th Anniversary Show & Sale is designed to showcase as many different pieces as possible, and to feature an eclectic assortment of art for the visiting public. Once a piece has been purchased, it will be replaced by another work resulting in an ever-changing exhibition. Over 100 pieces of Fine Craft by more than 50 artists will be available for purchase.
Proceeds from the sale will be split between the artists and the Saskatchewan Craft Council,which is generating funds for its HVAC and faÃ§ade renovation project of its heritage building on Broadway Avenue in Saskatoon.
In 1975, fifty-seven Saskatchewan craft artisans organized themselves with a common purpose to promote and raise the profile of Saskatchewan artisans, improve the quality of work produced, and facilitate communication among the membership. Now in its 40th year, the Saskatchewan Craft Council features a membership of 400 craftspeople and organizations and is considered a leader among provincial craft organizations!
The SCC 40th Anniversary Show & Sale provides a look at the rich quality, creativity, and variety of work from our membership, including pieces from founding members as well as emerging artists. We encourage all who appreciate and love Fine Craft to enjoy the exhibition and take the opportunity to add to your collections. A public reception to celebrate the 40th Anniversary will take place at 7 pm, August 7 at the Affinity Gallery.
