SOFA Chicago Educational Mission & Exhibition Pavilion

Craft Alliance will lead an Educational Mission to SOFA Chicago, November 2-6, 2017. This market intelligence and educational trade mission will be a pan-Atlantic mission with participation from the four Atlantic Provinces. Craft Alliance will coordinate a small group of export ready contemporary fine craftspeople to attend the 24th annual SOFA Chicago at Navy Pier, Chicago, IL. We will focus on those contemporary craftspeople who are experienced in gallery exhibition and who are actively seeking gallery representation. The educational mission will include a full day exploration of the contemporary gallery market in Chicago and participate in the SOFA Lecture Series, featuring guest speakers experienced in the contemporary fine craft market. There will also be a walking tour of galleries, arts centers and gallery openings, as well as touring the SOFA exposition. Contact Bernard Burton at Craft Alliance for more information.
