Artist-Run Organization: Blackberry Artist's Society
The subject of today’s feature is the Blackberry Artist’s Society, based in Port Moody, British Columbia. Blackberry is a fully artist-run organization dedicated to supporting the work of its members through gallery shows and sales at the Blackberry Gift Shop in Port Moody.
Silk scarves, wood carving, ceramics and jewelry are just some of the mediums that are on display from over 20 individual artists. The artists in the collective favour hand craftsmanship and natural materials, creating simple but beautiful pieces of sculpture and functional art. The Blackberry Artist’s Society offers a biography of each of their artists on its website.
The society welcomes new members through a juried application process. If you live in the Port Moody area and think your artwork is in fitting with Blackberry’s current collection, download an application package and follow the instructions on www.blackberrygiftshop.ca.
