January 14 to March 15, 2021

In February 2020 we launched a new outreach program to connect with our communities. On invitation, various groups come to the gallery and communicate a lived experience through a free workshop in clay. The lived experience is based on themes discussed with the leaders and the participants of each community group. The work created is then presented to the community at large with an exhibition and a publication. The second community group we invited was Thresholds Homes and Supports. We thank John and Rebecca Short for their support of this program. We do hope that this program will not only allow us to strengthen the existing bonds between our gallery and community partners we already have, but also new ones and allow for new friendships to be forged between the participants.

A Place at Your Table

November 14, 2020 to March 15, 2021

A Place at Your Table explores artistic expression in ceramics, glass, and enamel, with particular regard to tableware. The function of household objects has expanded from serving a utilitarian purpose to pieces with aesthetic values. Often, the lines between function and art can easily be blurred. While serving either function, aesthetics, or both, tableware can transform the mundane into a memorable experience.
