Outside In

The Summer 2016 exhibition at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery will be a curatorial partnership with CAFKA (Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area). In May of 2016, artists Rory MacDonald (Halifax), Jasna Sokolovic & Noel O’Connell of Dear Human (Montreal), Orest Tataryn (Toronto) and Vanessa Yanow in collaboration with John Tinholt (Montreal) will visit Waterloo Region to create artworks in public spaces in close proximity to the Gallery. The Gallery will feature works by the same artists, creating a dynamic correlation between the works on view in the public space and works that will simultaneously be on view in the Gallery space. The featured artists have histories of showing their work in both public spaces and in galleries and they are currently developing the work that will be debuted in summer 2016.

Works in the public space will on view starting on Saturday, May 28. The Opening Reception for the works in the Gallery is Sunday, July 10 at 2pm.



Earthborn is the annual, juried exhibition of work by members of the Waterloo Potters’ Workshop.  This cooperative group, established in 1968, is located in Waterloo Park and occupies the historic Jacob Eby farmhouse, which functions as a work/learn space for members and a teaching facility for the public. Earthborn was first held in 1976 at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery and has been hosted at various local galleries over the past 40 years.

This year Earthborn will be juried by Carmela Laganse. Laganse received her BFA at the University of Manitoba and her MFA at Ohio University. She has worked, taught and exhibited in Canada, Europe and the US. Her work was recently featured in Close Quarters at The Clay & Glass in winter 2016.
