About Us:
The Alberta Craft Council is the Provincial Arts Service Organization that develops, promotes, and advocates for Fine Craft in Alberta.

The Alberta Craft Council has a dual role:

to support contemporary and heritage crafts as significant art forms that contribute to Alberta’s culture

to develop a craft sector of creative, skilled, viable, and sustainable craftspeople, studios, businesses, and networks

In operation since 1980, the Alberta Craft Council promotes craft in Alberta by:

operating two gallery and shop locations in Alberta, Edmonton & Calgary

operating the largest public gallery in the province dedicated to exhibiting craft arts

organizing 15-20 exhibitions each year

running two gallery shops that market work from 150+ established and emerging craft artists

educating and informing the public

creating publications, marketing ventures, and awareness products to members and the public

organizing the Advisory Committee that accepts Professional Members and decides what artists to feature in our Gallery Shop

Membership with the Alberta Craft Council is open to all those working in the craft sector and to anyone interested in supporting the development of Alberta Craft.
