In Praise of Crafts

The Crafts Guild of Manitoba created many exhibitions, but their most popular exhibition was “In Praise of Craft,” a juried exhibition held in 1978 to celebrate the Guild’s 50th anniversary. “In Praise of Craft” was so successful that the Guild went on to host a juried exhibition every second year for the next decade.

Crafts from all mediums were exhibited from quilts and table runners to ceramics and cutlery. Crafts were celebrated and awarded for their artistic merit.
