A Handmade Assembly

Sackville, NB. Canada: 2023

111 pp. hardcover



A publishing project of the Owens Art Gallery and Struts Gallery, A Handmade Assembly publication was initiated in 2020 as the tenth and final iteration of the beloved community gathering. This ambitious book was envisioned as an important continuation of the Assembly, rather than a commemorative volume of past events.


From its beginning in 2011, A Handmade Assembly took a critical look at the intersection of contemporary art and the handmade by bringing people together through workshops, exhibitions, performances, presentations, and symposia. Created in the spirit of what made this annual event so vital, the publication combines critical texts and a variety of interactive artists projects. Designed by the award-winning Lauren Wickware, A Handmade Assembly is a gorgeous, 114-page, hardcover book with contributions from Anthea Black, Bisset + Latour, Emily Falvey, Amanda Fauteux, Paige Gratland, Faye Harnest, Paul Henderson, Julie Hollenbach, Gemey Kelly, Germaine Koh, Hazel Meyer, Geordie Miller, Christiana Myers, Suzie Smith, Tyshan Wright, and Pauline Young.


The Owens and Struts would like to thank A Handmade Assembly 2020 committee members Dave Dyment, Adriana Kuiper, Lucy MacDonald, Roula Partheniou, Jerry Ropson, and Rachel Thornton for their role in this publishing project. This book was made possible thanks to funding from the Canada Council for the Arts and the New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture.
