Craft and Sustainability

The Alberta Craft Council is hosting the exhibition:

Elemental Connections
An Exhibition of Sustainable Craft
July 12 - September 27, 2008

From their site: "The Alberta Craft Council in collaboration with the Ontario Crafts Council is pleased to present Elemental Connections, an exploration of the relationship between craft and sustainability. The works are selected by curator Arlene Gehring, with the intention of making space for craft makers, the public, and the OCC to address vital issues through craft media.

Elemental Connections, planned as part of Craft Year 2007, is one of the OCC’s signature exhibitions that situate craft as an essential component of Canadian culture. Questions of sustainability, environmental impact, and going ‘green’ are a concern for all Canadians. Placing craft discourse in the realm of this larger discussion brings the OCC closer to the issues affecting the community around us."
