Call for Work by NBCC Market Members: “Spectrum”
Posted on November 27, 2015 by Claire Shiplett
Call for Work by NB Crafts Council’s Market Membership: Spectrum
Application deadline: February 8, 2016

Spectrum, the New Brunswick Crafts Council’s 2016 Biennale, will be a group exhibition featuring colour as the main attraction. We invite NBCC Market Members to submit work where colour or absence of colour plays a significant role. Work may be monochromatic or multi-coloured and must be available from April through September, 2016. Our vision for the exhibition is to create a “spectrum” of colour flowing through the different gallery spaces, mixing different mediums to create a dynamic and effective visual experience that showcases the excellence of fine craft by NBCC members. This exhibition will challenge the viewer to critically think about the effect colour has on their experience of a piece. It will also encourage viewers to consider how one piece affects the other, within the broad spectrum of design, technique, aesthetic and tradition. Spectrum will be curated by Bronwyn Gallagher and is on display during the following months:

April 2016 – at the Sunbury Shore Arts & Nature Centre
June, 2016 – Location TBD (tentatively Moncton)
August, 2016 – at Government House in Fredericton

Written by NB Crafts Council

By now many of you have heard about, seen, and been a part of the Citizens of Craft™ movement and for this, we thank you!

We, the Provincial/Territorial Craft Councils, are strongly committed to this movement & to growing and increasing the reach of Citizens of Craft™ . But we can’t do it alone. Wee can’t do it without you. We need you to move together with us. So how can you do this?

To date, the movement has received fantastic support from you in the form of visiting the website, using the #CITIZENSOFCRAFT hashtag when sharing our manifesto and promoting craft, and by wearing the Citizens of Craft™ buttons and t-shirts. But now is the time for your most important contribution of all.

Now is the time when individual professional members* and business and institutional members within the Provincial Craft Councils can create their Profile on the Citizens of Craft™ website. Whether you create, sell, showwcase, promote, or teach craft, having a Profile in the Citizens Community is a way for you to present your connection to craft to the world.

When the site launches, your Profile will:
Showcase your craft both to the existing craft community and those who are discovering and purchasing craft
Be presented to site visitors through a wide array of robust searching options
Provide you the ability to post and promote personal or community craft events
And, most importantly, be part of a mass online exhibit of Canadian craft

Please click the following link to complete and submit your Profile:

www.citizensofcraft.ca/create-profile

We thank you again for declaring yourself a Citizen of Craft, for joining our Citizens Community by creating your Profile, and for playing an integral role in furthering the movement.

Stay tuned for more updates to come!
