Harbinger of Spring

Recent Works by Andrea Vuletin

May 29 to July 3, 2016

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

In Harbinger of Spring, Andrea Vuletin’s functional works act as canvases for vibrant botanical illustrations. This imagery references time spent in the garden and results in vessels that bring the outdoors in. Andrea’s floral and insect motifs speak about local biodiversity and a childhood fascination with flora and fauna. “The pieces I most enjoy are those that beg to live outside of the cupboard as objects of inspiration.”

Please join us in the new foyer exhibition space at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery for the Opening Reception of this next fuse exhibition on Sunday, May 29 at 2pm. The artist will be in attendance and all are welcome.
