Kitsch: Craft So Bad That It’s Good

Has the pandemic left you with the need for some comic relief? We invited Fine Craft artists working in all traditional and contemporary craft media to join in the fun and to create their interpretations of kitsch craft.

Kitsch: Craft So Bad That It’s Good is a group exhibition of works from Alberta Craft Council members. Creators responded from across the province to kitsch it up with humorous works that and will make you laugh and cringe all at once – crossing lines and breaking rules.


Implications of a Relationship

This exhibition by Norton (Mark Dutton and I) was at the Naess Gallery at The Paint Spot from April 1 to May 11, 2021. Exhibitions at other galleries were closed during this time due to pandemic health regulations but this exhibition was open because it was in an art store. We were interviewed about our collaborative print series and the resulting film is on YouTube: https://youtu.be/E8k9lhmT-34

Fine craft and digital technology can seem like an unlikely or contradictory pairing. The incorporation of digital technology into fine craft challenges us with questions of where it is produced, the level of skill required to create it and the degree that it is made by hand. Yet fine craft has a long tradition of innovation and the integration of this new technology is no exception.

#ABCraft looks at how digital technology is enhancing or impacting fine craft artists in Alberta. Social media, digital imaging and 3-D printing are becoming more common and an increasingly important career opportunity for fine craft artists. The exhibition features new and recent work by artists using digital technology in many ways including communications, marketing, research, image development, prototyping and production.

Participating Artists: Timothy Belliveau (Montreal, QB), Holly Boone (Edmonton), Andrée Chénier (Toronto, ON), Brenda Danbrook (Opal), Terry Hildebrand (Edmonton), Mike Lam (Edmonton), Sara Norquay (Edmonton), Laura O’Connor (Edmonton), Bob Pike (High River), Amy Skrocki (Edmonton), Jenna Stanton (Medicine Hat) and Kari Woo (Canmore).

In the exhibition, Printfluence, four Alberta artists from diverse formal backgrounds explore the boundaries of woodblock printing. Andrea Itzeck is primarily a jeweler, Brenda Malkinson is known for creating architectural sculptures in coloured glass, Sara Norquay is a book artist and textiles artist and Tadeusz Warszynski became a painter after first becoming an accomplished musician. All four, however, have turned their attention to the ancient art of reductive colour woodblock printing for this exhibition.
