Shiny Fuzzy Muddy 2013


The Shiny Fuzzy Muddy Collective formed in 2003 to collaborate in bringing their art to the people. The driving force and vision behind this artist-run, annual event comes from the group’s five core members, Laura McKibbonJanna HurtzigKari WooArleigh Wood and Frances Dickinson. Initially drawn to each other’s aesthetic sensibilities, they found great support and inspiration in their collaboration and so a decade later, the event lives happily on.

Shiny Fuzzy Muddy celebrates its 14th event and 10th year of operation, every year inviting new guest artists to exhibit and sell their work as part of the curated collection of talent. With new, innovative, and Canadian-made products, Shiny Fuzzy Muddy patrons can expect a number of different materials from its 27 vendors this year.

So what does Shiny Fuzzy Muddy mean? Shiny: Precious objects of adornment. Fuzzy: Warm garments to wrap your home and body in. Muddy: Clay moulded into contemporary forms for the kitchen and tabletop. Created as an antidote to large-scale craft fairs and an alternative to big-box-store, mass produced goods, the thoughtfully conceived Shiny Fuzzy Muddy Show aims to support and promote the brightest creative talents where art, craft and design intersect.
