Become a Gallery Shop Artist
The Alberta Craft Council Advisory Committee exists to provide professional feedback to craft artists in regards to their craft product and business. 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 and Shop 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 Shop 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.
The review is tailored to address the interests of members who seek a general professional critique, representation in the Gallery Shop or both for no additional charge. 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.
> The Advisory Committee does not review applications to the shop in November and December.
> Include physical samples of your work with your application.
