10 000 Hours: Celebrating 40 Years of the Craft Object

It’s the fortieth anniversary of the Craft Council of BC and in celebration they are having a whole series of shows around the province on the theme of 10,000 hours. I have one of my paper cut vessels in the show opening tonight at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby.

From the press release:

…Malcolm Gladwell identified 10,000 hours as the “magic number of greatness” in his book Outliers: The Story of Success. The artists featured in this exhibit are working towards 10,000 hours in their own expertise. They are intimately familiar with many aspects of their chosen materials –what they can and can’t do, where they can push them, as well as their metaphoric, communicative potential.
