This series of collected works by friends, family and colleagues will celebrate the vibrant life and work of Dr. Sandra Alfoldy. Dr. Alfoldy was one of Canada’s preeminent Craft Historians, her work pioneered the discourse around Canadian studio craft, as well as offered important critical assessments of Craft and Modernity. Sandra was also beloved Professor at NSCAD University for almost 20 years. In recognition of the huge impact Sandra has had on Craft communities all over the world, this community-centred group showcase invites students, colleagues, and collaborators to submit writings, craft and art work that honours Sandra’s excellent mentorship, collaboration and friendship. Originally set to open in September 2020 as a two week long exhibition, this celebration will now consist of an online showcase and digital publication of submissions that celebrate the amazing life of Sandra! A physical exhibition will open in 2021 once limitations regarding large gatherings have been lifted.
