Opening Reception: January 14 at 2:00pm with remarks at 2:30. Some of the artists will be in attendance. This event is free and all are welcome.

For the winter 2018 season, the Gallery will present an exhibition of the curated works of seven artists who won the RBC Award for Glass between 2008 and 2016. They are Benjamin Kikkert, Ito Laïla Le François, Aaron Oussoren, Julia Reimer, Brad Turner, Cheryl Wilson Smith, and Rachael Wong. The exhibition will feature new work by these artists, illustrating the growth in their artistic practice and output stimulated by winning the prestigious award.

These artists, in addition to sharing the distinction of winning the RBC Award for Glass, also share a commitment to the exploration of glass as an experimental and seductive medium. While some of the artists in this exhibition make use of traditional glass manipulation techniques including casting, blowing, sandblasting and pâte de verre, others incorporate investigation of 3D printing and digital manufacturing methods into their practice.

This exhibition has been made possible in part by a contribution from:
The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation – Musagetes Fund.
