 Alberta Craft Council is coming to Calgary & you can help!

After 15 proposals over more than a decade, the ACC is ready to invest in a permanent second facility. Located in a 1910 historic sandstone school, being restored and expanded as c-Space King Edward Arts Hub, the gallery is expected to open in early 2017.

This Calgary space will expand much of the current ACC activity including 15-20 exhibitions each year; website, e-news and social media; advisory services; media and marketing campaigns; and extensive sales of members’ work.

Donations are being accepted to facilitate this.

Sale of special note

  I am a fibre artist in Calgary and I am selling off all the contents of my studio in an auction. I am no longer doing the work.

 Perhaps your people might be interested, especially since it will probably all go for very little, as the general public or the auction regulars are probably not too likely to know much about the stuff.

 I am attaching the announcement. You can call me if you have questions.
