The Carnegie Craft Juried Biennial Exhibition is an event that features a wide range of talent from Ontario-based crafts practitioners.

Carnegie Craft 2023 is open to both emerging and established professional craftspeople. Material categories that will be considered by the jury include ceramic, wood, textile, metal, glass and mixed media. This is a great opportunity to exhibit your work, and to be considered for one of eight awards!

During the evening of the opening reception on Friday, October 6th, winners of the following awards will be announced: $500 for Best in Show, two $300 Awards of Excellence, and five media-specific awards.

The Carnegie Gallery was established in 1980 as a non-profit artist-run gallery and shop, and is situated in the heart of Dundas, Ontario. The Gallery is mandated to encourage the appreciation of Canadian art and artists, in both visual art and craft.
