Sask Artisans Sell at SMAQ in Montreal
Updated: May 4
In December of 2018, the Saskatchewan Craft Council attended Montreal's Salon des métiers d’art du Quebec (SMAQ) for the first time thanks, in part, to the support of Creative Saskatchewan.
SMAQ was the ideal venue to showcase the talent of three Saskatchewan Craft Council professional craftspeople: Sherri Hrycay of Sova Design Millinery, Kathleen O’Grady of grady bleu, and Mary Lynn Podiluk, Art Jeweller & Goldsmith, allowing them to promote their businesses to a Quebec audience.
“Having the opportunity to attend the Salon des métiers d’art du Québec with the support and presence of the Saskatchewan Craft Council this past December was phenomenal," said Podiluk. "In addition to good sales, this year‘s attendance presented some hopeful connections, such as the possibility to gain gallery representation in Montréal, and inquiries for one of a kind and custom pieces."
