An economic boom, the comfortable modernism of Swedish design, and a wave of young traditionally trained potters schooled in the Leach-Hamada tradition led to the birth of the modern ceramic movement in Canada. This generation of potters took functional forms and explored them as personal expressions that made them art for everyday living.  In doing so they created forms that still are as fresh today as when they were created.  This style is seeing a rebirth today – this is a chance to see the source.

Mundialization: Student Art Exchange

April 25, 2017 to June 1, 2017

Location: RBC Community Gallery
Opening Reception: Thursday May 25, 5pm-7pm

In conjunction with the City of Burlington’s Mundialization Committee, the AGB presents a display of student artwork from St. Elizabeth Seton School in Burlington, and Fujimidai from our twin city of Itabashi, Japan. The definition of mundialization is the act of a city declaring itself a “world citizen” and being aware of global issues with a sense of shared rights and responsibility. The concept involves the twinning of cities from around the world, in the belief that peaceful cooperation depends on mutual trust and appreciation among peoples of different nations, races, and cultures. Mundialization encourages citizen connections as a way of fostering world peace and global understanding. Burlington’s twin cities are Itabashi, Japan and Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.

Join us on Saturday May 6, 2017 for the Cherry Blossom Festival from 1pm-3:30pm at the Art Gallery of Burlington.
