Affinity Gallery – Call for Exhibition Proposals
The SCC's Affinity Gallery presents up to eight exhibitions annually. Applications are accepted from craftspeople, curators and galleries for solo, two-person and group exhibitions reflecting craft history and current practice. Currently we are booked through to summer 2015 and are looking for exhibitions to consider after that time.
PROCESS AND CRITERIA: The Exhibitions & Education Coordinators along with the SCC Curatorial Committee assess all applications. Information from each applicant is sent to members of the Curatorial Committee prior to an annual review meeting where proposals are considered along with their support material. The Curatorial Committee acts in an advisory capacity to the Coordinators.
The SCC looks for work that will contribute to and challenge the craft community. Curated or juried exhibitions are encouraged, especially for groups. Saskatchewan shows are balanced with about one out-of-province exhibition per year, which should be curated or juried. There is also consideration for representative balance in the craft mediums we exhibit.
Applications should include high quality digital images, cover letter, image list, a concise exhibition description or proposal and CV's of all participants. Additional support material should minimal, but could include recent reviews, catalogues or other relevant information about the applicant(s).
Submission Deadline: Saturday, November 15, 2014
