GREETINGS FROM THE MANITOBA CRAFT COUNCIL The Manitoba Craft Council is proud to partner with the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association to bring you this year’s CRAFTED sale. Visitors to past events have told us that you love CRAFTED for the high quality of work presented here. You value excellent, handcrafted objects, and you appreciate the education, experience, and skill of the artists behind the work. You’ve noted how the WAG’s striking architecture enhances the sale, making it an ideal venue to showcase contemporary craft of this calibre. Participating artists love CRAFTED for many of the same reasons. It’s a unique opportunity to show their work in a space associated with artistic excellence, surrounded by other makers whose work they respect. Thanks to the dedication and skill of WAG staff, the event is always organized, beautifully presented, and well-publicized. And more than anything, the artists appreciate you, the CRAFTED visitor. Your curiosity, intelligence, and genuine interest in craft and craftspeople make CRAFTED an outstanding experience for the people behind the tables. An informed, discerning, and enthusiastic audience is a real gift to artists, so thank you for being YOU! As always, on behalf of the artists, I want to thank the many people who have worked to bring CRAFTED to life for the fourth year running: Sherri Van Went, WAG’s Retail Operations Manager and the heart and soul of CRAFTED; Doren Roberts and all of the WAG staffers whose prodigious skills in fundraising, communications, and event planning make CRAFTED such a success; the CRAFTED committee (with a special thanks to the Chair, Yoko Chapman); to our Northern partners, for generously sharing your work with us; and to the craft artists who engage us and enrich our lives through your work–thank you!!

GREETINGS FROM THE NUNAVUT ARTS AND CRAFTS ASSOCIATION The Nunavut Arts & Crafts Association is happy to partner with the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Manitoba Craft Council for the fourth edition of CRAFTED. Nunavut is one of Canada’s most creative regions: about one third of Nunavummiut identify as artists. Incredibly, more than 10 per cent of all Canadian art and craft sold internationally is made in the territory, which has a population of only 40,000. With so many in Nunavut involved in the arts economy—for personal and family use all the way up to international commercial sales—arts and crafts is an everyday activity for many in the territory, who draw personal and cultural strength and resilience through their practices. We are grateful to our collaborators and the organizers of this project whose hard work results in this wonderful showcase of the very best from across Nunavut and Manitoba. Thank you to our friends at the WAG, the CRAFTED committee, the MCC, and our funding partners, the Government of Nunavut and the Kakivak Association. We hope those who attend CRAFTED will gain knowledge of, and find a new appreciation for the exciting, beautiful, and unique arts and crafts Nunavut has to offer.

Janet Pitsiulaaq Brewster Executive Director Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association

Art as Unique as the Land Where It’s Made

Canada’s most creative region, the territory of Nunavut is home to more than 4,000 artists. One-third of Nunavut residents identify as artists (40 times the national average) and more than 10 per cent of Canadian art sold internationally is made by Inuit artists. Embodying the creativity and ingenuity that is a natural part of Inuit culture and using skills passed from generation to generation, Inuit artists have developed a worldwide reputation for their beautifully crafted and distinctive work.

GREETINGS FROM THE CHAIR Community and Creative Collaboration is our theme for the 2018 CRAFTED Show + Sale at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. Now onto its fourth year, CRAFTED is a juried show featuring the unique offerings of 50 artists from Manitoba and Nunavut. It is a show for lovers of contemporary craft and supporters of our creative and philanthropic communities. CRAFTED’s goal is to elevate the Art of Craft at the WAG by showcasing talented artists, and staying true to CRAFTED’s unique philanthropic tradition which is the key to this one-of-a-kind event. This year, the handmade continues to become the hand-given, but it’s all souped-up and delivered in a different “vessel.” Plans for CRAFTED 2018 started with the question of which cause could benefit, leading to the inception of this year’s philanthropic endeavour Down to Earth: Homemade Soups in Handmade Vessels, a collaborative cookbook project of Ayoko Design and CRAFTED. A thousand thank-yous to our presenting partners, the Manitoba Craft Council and Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association, our donors and sponsors, the chefs and artists who shared their work, and the CRAFTED committee and volunteers. We continue to be overwhelmed and inspired by the generosity and commitment from our community of patrons and supporters and are thrilled with the response our cookbook has already received. We hope you try out our pop-up soup and beer bar for a samping of recipes from our cookbook, and take away with you, a little piece of our CRAFTED community. Enjoy the show.

FEATURED ARTISTS These talented artists have been selected for their original and high quality work. Learn more about the people behind the crafts.

Aelios Designs • Winnipeg, MB • Jewellery L2 Katerina Pappas of Aelios Designs is mostly self-taught, and has been creating jewellery using traditional, but environmentally-friendly methods for eight years. She learned while living abroad, having had the opportunity to work with seasoned metalsmiths. She prefers to use salt and vinegar to clean her pieces, beeswax to lubricate, and water-based finishing solutions, rather than chemical options. Pappas uses only natural materials in her pieces and recycles materials as often as possible. Her work is luxurious, yet lightweight and comfortable for everyday wear.

PJ Anderson • Winnipeg, MB • Ceramics L3 PJ Anderson is an early career ceramic artist originally from Thompson, Manitoba. Her work draws from the longing for connection to cultural resources that were lost to the colonial machine. Hundreds of years removed from the involuntary migration of her Jamaican and Aboriginal peoples, she still feels a strong kinship to their traditional crafts of basketry and ceramics. Anderson sees each piece as a love letter to her ancestors. She has shown internationally in South Africa, China, and the United States.

Ashoona Studios • Elie, MB • Mixed Media • L4 Goota Ashoona is a third generation, female Inuit artist from Cape Dorset, Nunavut. From a long line of wellknown artists, Ashoona, along with her artist husband Bob Kussy and their twin sons Joe Jaw and Samueli Ashoona, founded and run Ashoona Studios, currently operating in Elie, Manitoba. Produced both individually and collaboratively, their work is part autobiographical and part historical, detailing stories from their family life. Many carvings are made from whalebone and black argillite, but often mixed with other materials such as caribou antler, soapstone, copper, and claws.


Kathleen Noelle Black • Winnipeg, MB • Glass L4 Kathleen Noelle Black is captivated by the concepts of time, mortality, seasons, nature, people, the changes in light, and enjoying now. It is the strength and beauty of people and the prairies that inspires her. Black works with Artists in Healthcare to facilitate Art Next to the Big Blue Chair. This program is a fun, creative way for cancer patients to relax during their chemotherapy treatment. This merging of art and caring is a natural extension of her work as a chemotherapy nurse.

Johanna Brierley • Winnipeg, MB • Jewellery L3 Johanna Brierley’s fascination with jewellery can be traced back to her childhood. She developed an enthusiasm for found objects and a curiosity about the various ways in which an object interacts with the body. Whether she is discovering shiny, unusual shapes of glass and stone along a beach, or scouring antique markets for objects with a unique past, her work is informed by her passion for collecting and an eye for the exceptional and unexpected.

Jessica Canard • Winnipeg, MB • Jewellery L2 Jessica Canard’s beadwork is her way of connecting to her ancestors and her culture as an Anishinaabe Ikwe. Her personality comes out in her choice of colours, keeping things vibrant and sparkly. Through the creation of her beaded fringe earrings, she wants to share her love of learning and life while connecting with others. Canard is from Sagkeeng First Nation.

FEATURED ARTISTS Janet Carroll • Winnipeg, MB • Paper L4 Marbled paper inspires Janet Carroll’s work in book arts.

Using hand tools and early industrial equipment, he is dedicated to crafting each item by hand, giving his creations the timeless feel of handmade work.

Kevin Conlin • Wawanesa, MB • Ceramics L1 Born and raised in Manitoba, Kevin Conlin has been creating with clay for over 30 years. As an artist and amateur paleontologist, he draws inspiration from the fossils he discovers and excavates on many of his expeditions.

They create jewellery from 40% recycled resins that incorporate organic materials and handwoven items developed by skilled artisans in diverse regions around the world.

Herman de Vries • Winnipeg, MB • Wood L1 For Herman de Vries, wood turning is a labour of love that began when he needed a desk and could not afford to buy one, so he built his own. At first, he never considered this an art, but as time went on, the wood began to “speak” to him and soon every piece of firewood became a fresh opportunity. Taking wood from a dying tree on his parent’s 1920s homestead and turning it into a piece of art, he preserved something that represented his mother and father. He was able to leave a legacy and a piece of art that people would enjoy.

Brook Drabot • Warren, MB • Glass L2 Brook Drabot is a glass artist living and creating in Manitoba. She loves producing handmade, natureinspired blown glass wares, home decor, jewellery, and art pieces. Elements of naturalist collections, botanical references, personalized ritual, and fairy tale imaginings are incorporated into her glass to create work that is both familiar and otherworldly. Experimenting between flameworked, blown, and cast glass, Drabot often combines multiple small components together. She studied at the Sheridan College’s School of Craft and Design, Red Deer College, and Pratt Fine Arts Center.


FEATURED ARTISTS Debra Frances • Winnipeg, MB • Paper L3 Debra Frances has always been a maker, raised in an environment where innovation and creativity were nurtured. She bound her first book in 2006, a simple design for her school-aged daughter, and was immediately drawn into the world of bookbinding.

She is especially interested in the quality and design of historical bindings, and is always looking for ways to innovate using contemporary materials and ideas.

Dawn Teasdale • Winnipeg, MB • Jewellery L2 Dawn Teasdale makes contemporary and modern jewellery, including earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets, designed for everyday wear. Her signature style includes the use of clean lines combined with bold textures and patinas. Teasdale works almost entirely in sterling silver, but incorporates gold and gemstones as accents.

CJ Tennant • Winnipeg, MB • Jewellery L1 CJ Tennant creates exquisite, graceful, and graphic jewellery. She loves discovering new colour combinations with unusual gemstones and exploring new and traditional shapes in all of her pieces.

Each piece is handmade by Tennant in Winnipeg, Manitoba, using gemstones, pearls, sterling silver, and gold vermeil.

Daria Tittenberger • Winnipeg, MB • Jewellery L2 Daria Tittenberger is a jewellery artist who works predominantly with an off-loom beadweaving technique.
