Rock Paper Scissors: The Transformative Power of Craft

Semiahmoo Arts is really pleased to be working with the White Rock Museum & Archives to present Rock, Paper, Scissors: The Transformative Power of Craft. The exhibit works with the theme of “10,000 Hours Invested: Craft– Past and Present.” Part of the Inaugural Fall Festival of the Arts in White Rock, the display is on for more than a month, giving community members of all ages a chance to see a wide variety of art completed by 15 different artists.

Intended to represent how important craft still is in the Semiahmoo Peninsula region, the joint organizers have joined forces with the following artists: June Bloye, Aryn Bowers, John Butt, Roxanne Charles, Don Fleming, Suzanne Gerard, Elizabeth Glowacki, Don Hutchinson, Colin Hyatt, Lance King, Samantha Knopp, Robert Gary Parkes, Sharon Reay, Anne J Steves, and Diane Zwickel. Represented mediums range from fibre to metal, wood to ceramic, and glass to vellum.

The Museum will also be hosting Sunday workshops and presentations for the duration of the exhibit from 1:00pm-3:00pm. Learn why tea cups have those awkward handles or the secret behind a perfect felted bowl.
