DEADLINE SUNDAY Call for Nominations: Governor General’s Saidye Bronfman Award 2015

Nomination Deadline: June 1, 2014

The Saidye Bronfman Award is Canada’s foremost distinction for excellence in fine crafts. “Fine Craft” is the term used to define an area of activity in the crafts that is frequently directed towards exhibition and/or sale in a gallery-like setting. This activity involves high levels of technical expertise as well as knowledge of the historical tradition and development of the craft. Through their work, fine craft practitioners demonstrate new concepts and innovations that expand the boundaries of the medium and its techniques.

Created in 1977 by the Bronfman family to honour their mother on her 80th birthday, the prize is awarded annually to an exceptional fine craft artist.
