The Clay & Glass is excited to once again present a performance by the Bicycle Opera Project. The Bicycle Opera Project is the only opera company that tours by bicycle. Designed to bring contemporary Canadian music to smaller communities where there is little opportunity to hear it, their company closes the gap between audiences and singers by performing in intimate spaces. They perform new Canadian works that focus on current issues, in English.

Sweat is an a cappella opera for nine singers by Juliet Palmer and Anna Chatterton about the global garment industry. It was commissioned and developed by Soundstreams with the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council and Opera.ca and was premiered in New York City this past October. This July, Bicycle Opera is undertaking the Canadian premiere.

Sculptural Ceramics by Mary Philpott, May 26 to July 6, 2017

FUSE, an ongoing initiative of the Gallery Shop at The Clay & Glass, is a diverse exhibition series featuring selected works for sale, created by Gallery Shop artists and special guests.

Mary Philpott began her career studying art history and archeology at the University of Guelph. The natural affinity between the subjects led her to an interest in clay. The dark whimsy of her roughly worked creatures enchant and vaguely threaten. Their rough beauty belies their tenderness, recalling the surreal fantasy of Alice in Wonderland, or the urban fairy tales of Charles de Lint or Neil Gaiman.

Please drop-in and visit this spectacular exhibition in our Gallery space in Uptown Waterloo.
