This came today. Apparently too few appliedto the former deadline. Karen thought it might be because of the mess at MCC. There must be people out there who would love to have their work tour the province - so hustle, folks, don't miss this deadline.

Deadline: June 6, 2006

Contemporary Fine Craft and Decorative Art Artists of Manitoba. The Manitoba Arts Network is planning a provincial-touring exhibit celebrating 2007 Year of the Craft. This exhibit will visit venues throughout Manitoba and will feature a juried show of selected works of Contemporary Fine Craft by Manitoba Artists. Exhibit Dates are September 2007 - May 2008

Titled "Artful Divergence" the theme will centre on new and unusual construction of craft. Featuring works that stretch the boundaries of craft that combine science and technology, skill and tactility. All works will demonstrate professionalism, excellence, and cultural awareness.

Packages must include: Artist Contact Information, CV and Artist Statement, slides and/or JPEG images of current work on CD.
Submitted work should not exceed 2'X3'X3' or weigh more than 40lbs. For return of support material please include a stamped self addressed envelope.

Work will be selected based on technical standards, artistic merit, and relevance to theme. Only complete submission packages will be accepted.

Ron Mark phoned today and left a message to say that the new MCC board handed in a proposal to Cultural Affairs this morning to seek $25,000 to make it possible to hire an accountant to do an audit of the last 2 years, and to hire a consultant to help make a plan for moving forward. They hope to hear in a couple of weeks. In the meantime they are contacting creditors and trying to take care of what they can.
