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).
