Summary Today, there is an increasing permeability between the realms of craft and art occurring in step with an emphasis on the handmade in contemporary art practice and in the widespread interest in all things handcrafted. 'Making Otherwise' presents the work of six Canadian artists who merge the material and conceptual approaches of craft and art: Richard Boulet (Alberta), Ursula Johnson (Nova Scotia), Marc Courtemanche (Quebec), Paul Mathieu (British Columbia), Sarah Maloney (Nova Scotia), and Janet Morton (Ontario). Drawing on their fluency in ceramics, basket weaving, furniture making, stitchery, bronze casting, woodworking, and knitting, these artists think through materials, forms, and ideas to make things differently or otherwise.
