Advisory Committee

The Advisory Committee is a member service offered to all ACC members. Its goal is to examine work and provide advice about quality, design, and saleability. 

Unlike traditional juries who generally give you a yes or no decision, the Advisory Committee provides analysis, direction, and encouragement.  Whether there is a new line of work you would like feedback on, market positioning questions, technical concerns, or you would like to see how your work is perceived by a group of your peers, then the Advisory Committee is a resource for you.

Another goal of the Advisory Committee is to facilitate a system whereby the quality and marketability of the crafts offered for sale within the Alberta Craft Gallery achieve a high standard that will benefit everyone - the buyer, the seller and you, the craft artist.

The Advisory Committee accepts or declines work for the retail gallery based upon a number of criteria, which have been developed to best assist you, both with your present and future marketing needs, and also with our ability to successfully promote you and your product. These criteria include: design which includes originality, creativity, use of colour, and suitability of materials; craft skills such as finishing details, technical skills, and experience with materials and function; and saleability or marketability, pricing, and product presentation.

If you would like to have your work reviewed by the Advisory Committee please complete the Advisory Committee Questionnaire.

It is recommended however, that only those craft artists serious about developing their skills and/or career submit a portfolio to the Advisory Committee.

NOTE:
> The Advisory Committee does not review applications in November and December.
> Include physical samples of your work with your application.
