Craft Council Gallery
- Comfort and Joy

Location: St. John's, NL

The Craft Council Gallery constantly works to raise the profile of fine contemporary craft in Newfoundland and Labrador and they do so through a number of ways that include exhibitions, artist presentations, educational partnerships, research, and other means of artist support. The gallery houses two exhibition spaces, the main gallery and the annex gallery. Throughout the year, these spaces are used to present programming and exhibitions that embrace change in contemporary craft and encourage community engagement. The popular Christmas exhibition Comfort and Joy is on now as part of their lineup for the main gallery. This year it focuses on creating harmony through colour combinations, contrasting elements, repetition, rhythm, and other creative techniques. The exhibition runs from November 25 to December 19, 2017.
