Crafted NWT

Alberta Craft Gallery - Edmonton, Edmonton, AB - To May 29 and online

by Robin Laurence

Organized by NWT Arts and the Craft Council of NWT, this group exhibition reveals the craft traditions of both northern Indigenous Peoples and settlers. Works on view – by 20 artists from across the Northwest Territories – include jewelry, basketry, beading, quillwork, stained glass, ceramics, stone sculpture, clothing and textile art. “Some craftspeople are purists, adhering to tradition,” the show’s organizers tell us, while others “blend traditional techniques with contemporary styles.”
