In 1979, the Crafts Guild of Manitoba held their first “In Praise of Crafts” juried exhibit to belatedly celebrate their 50th Anniversary. The fifth and last “In Praise of Crafts” exhibit was held in 1988, to celebrate their 60th “Diamond Jubilee” Anniversary. Over the course of these five shows, almost 700 works were exhibited, representing hundreds of artists. It was ground breaking at the time as a juried venue for artists practicing in craft media to showcase their work in Manitoba. It raised the profile and credibility of craft to a new level.
