 Call for Craft Entries - Exhibit at Eptek Art & Culture Centre

November 1, 2018 - Summerside PE
        
Call for Craft Entries

Eptek Art & Culture Centre, in partnership with the P.E.I. Crafts Council, will host the 2019 edition of Celebration of Craft in the summer of 2019. This is a similar undertaking to the 2003, 2007, 2011, and 2015 editions of the fine craft exhibitions organized by this same partnership. The theme for the coming exhibit is PEI’s natural history. Eptek Centre invites entries from the general public, as well as members of the P.E.I. Crafts Council, for this special exhibition.

As in the past, the exhibition will aim to showcase the wide variety of craft produced on the Island and, particularly, to demonstrate to the public the wealth of talent to be found across the province. Celebration of Craft 2019, entitled P.E.I. Nature Inspires Craft will be a juried exhibition. All artisans are asked to select an artifact as inspiration for their piece. Images of artifacts from P.E.I.’s natural history will be provided to inspire. The inspiration pieces might include birds, plants, nests, fossils, or bones.

The exhibition is open to Island craftspeople, both amateur and professional. The deadline for Expressions of Interest is Friday, January 11, 2019. Prizes will be awarded for the top three entries. Jurors will be looking for special crafted pieces rather than work that might be regularly offered in shops. In addition to craftsmanship, other criteria are innovative design, skillful execution of the concept, and uniqueness. All pieces should be new work, functional, inspired by the selected artifact, and ready for display. All work must be finished and presented at Eptek Centre in Summerside by mid-May 2019. The exhibition will be on display from June until October.

All interested artisans should contact Eptek Centre to submit an expression of interest by email at eptek@gov.pe.ca and provide artisan’s name, postal and e-mail addresses, phone number, and medium. The PEI Crafts Council has promoted the making and appreciation of handcrafts on PEI for over 50 years. For more details on the submission process or the exhibition, please call 902-888-8373. There is no fee to enter.
