The Craft Council of British Columbia presents our inaugural fundraising auction and exhibition, FRAMED. For this open call auction, we have invited artists to envision a frame (think picture frame, glasses frames, or doorframe) as art itself rather than as supplementary object. We have encouraged artists to think beyond the frame as protector, support and cradle and to explore the complexity of the frame in their respective media.
The Ladysmith Fine Craft show celebrates fine craft from artisans living and working on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. The juried exhibition shows the mastery and creativity in a variety of work including basketry, clay, fiber, glass, leather, metal, paper, stone, wood, combined media and jewelry. This special exhibition runs from May 6 – 30, 2022 and is free to view Monday to Saturday 11am to 4pm. Join us at the opening and award ceremony on Saturday May 7 at 2pm and meet the artists as well as awarding $3500 in prizes!
