My Eyes Are on You

June 1, 2018 to September 9, 2018

Location: Dan Lawrie Family Courtyard
Public reception: Friday June 1, 6pm-9pm

Joon Hee Kim’s ceramic installation, My Eyes Are on You takes inspiration from historical gardens ranging from the Mannerist garden of the Park of the Monsters in Bomarzo Italy, to the formal grounds of Versailles. With this in mind she examines the nature of transition, how styles continuously change and how, while change may be inherently feared, something good can arise from it.

Pacific Overtures

April 14, 2018 to July 8, 2018

Location: Permanent Collection Corridor

Drawn from the AGB’s Permanent Collection, this exhibition looks at the effect that Japanese ceramics has had on Canadian ceramics. While many Canadians have gone to study in Japan, often heading toward the pottery town of Mashiko, the home of Hamada and Shimaoka, others have been inspired by the work of Bernard Leach who introduced Mingei pottery to the western world.

AGB Ceramics Residency: Karla Rivera

May 30, 2018 to June 28, 2018

Location: RBC Gallery
Public reception: Friday June 1, 6pm-9pm

The Art Gallery of Burlington is proud to present the second AGB Ceramics Residency exhibition featuring the work of 2017/18 resident Karla Rivera. With access to fully equipped studios, the residency allows artists to build their portfolio with diverse projects that support the Gallery’s programming. It provides the artist with the opportunity to teach in community and studio programs, and to present new work in a solo exhibition in the RBC Gallery.

About the Artist
Karla Rivera is a ceramic artist born and raised in Mexico City. After some travelling, she moved to Hamilton, Ontario. At this point she started to listen to her artistic voice and got involved in the world of ceramics. In 2015 she got a Ceramics Diploma from Sheridan College in the Craft and Design Program. In 2016 she got the position of Artist in residence in the Art Gallery of Burlington. While this happened she was chosen to participate in the Fusion program Creative Direction.

Rivera’s work consists of functional and sculptural ceramics. She is interested in the forms that make the connections between the structures of nature such as the shape of an island, and the emotional states of the human mind trying to interpret and project them.
