Art can portray the world's most complex subjects: the passion of love, the horrors of war, and the despair of fruit waiting to be eaten. Hold a mirror to nature with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get two weekend passes to the Wintergreen Fine Craft Market presented by Saskatchewan Craft Council (up to a $10 value). The market will be held at the Conexus Arts Centre from Friday, November 18 to Sunday, November 20, and passes are valid for unlimited admission throughout the weekend.
Visitors enter the Wintergreen Fine Craft Market to peruse and purchase the handmade work of more than 80 craft artists, visual artists, and local food producers. Art-seekers can stock up on traditional and contemporary creations such as jewellery, furniture, and professional photography that prompt guests' point-and-shoot cameras to flash their approval in morse code. Peer through glass pieces to the see the world differently, knock on wooden artwork for luck, or flesh out living-room galleries with a sculpture. After inspecting the main booths, crafty duos can meander over to the emerging-artists booth, where up-and-coming masterpiece makers showcase work in styles such as mixed media, painting, and printmaking. All of the event's art creators undergo a rigorous jury process that separates the artisans from the crowds of people who just figured out they could use a ponytail as a paintbrush.
Passes grant visitors the power to return as many times as they like during the market's three-day run, giving them ample time to visit each booth. Wintergreen Fine Craft Market welcomes as many art lovers as possible, with access for wheelchairs and free parking for regular and papier-mâché SUVs.
