To artists living and working in the Columbia Basin

Invested: 10,000 Hours – an exhibition of contemporary craft.

In celebration of the Craft Council of British Columbia’s 40th anniversary, the Kootenay Gallery of Art will host an exhibition of contemporary craft that demonstrates artistic innovation in the creative use of craft materials and processes.   The exhibition will take place at the Kootenay Gallery of Art, Castlegar, British Columbia, from September 20 - November 9, 2013.

The concept for Invested: 10,000 Hours is based on the theory that time and dedication underlie the attainment of expertise in a chosen field.

As an artist, designer-maker, you have invested, or are working towards 10,000 hours in your own expertise.  You are intimately familiar with the many aspects of your chosen materials – what they can and cannot do, how far you can push them, and what their metaphoric and communicative potential is.

Artists who create one-of-a-kind and/or production work in traditional and contemporary craft media are invited to submit artwork for consideration.  The curated selection of artwork will highlight the artist’s dedication to creative practice, familiarity with chosen materials, craftsmanship, and the understanding of the communicative potential of contemporary craft.
