Delacretaz, Helen (Curator); Joan Padgett (Ed.). Precise: Craft Refined; A catalogue of an exhibition held at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Sept. 10, 2011 to Jan 15, 2012. Winnipeg, Manitoba: Winnipeg Art Gallery, 2011. First printing. ISBN: 9780889150096. pp. 46. Slim Oblong 8vo. Replete with black and white and colour photographs, illustrations. No detectable flaws; fine. “Publication exploring the evolution of craft through the work of five contemporary artists who expand its definition. While each artist addresses particular issues of politics, gender, environment, and history, all the works are linked by the involvement of the hand, the commitment of time and the dedication to precision. Underlying each piece is a deep knowledge of the media and the techniques used to control and work with them. Despite the rampant integration of digital technology into all aspects of our lives, these artists remain committed to the direct involvement of the hand in the creation of unique pieces. The introductory essay is accompanied by individual presentations and artist’s statements.” Fine. Softcover. (#1131) $35.00
