Location: RBC Community Gallery
Public reception: Tuesday January 3, 6pm-8pm

The Art Gallery of Burlington is proud to present the first AGB Ceramics Residency exhibition featuring the work of 2016/17 resident Dawn Hackett-Burns. 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 Community Gallery.

About the Artist
Dawn Hackett-Burns is an emerging ceramic artist based in Greensville, Ontario. Mostly self-taught, she has honed her craft by attending workshops and receiving mentorship from ceramic artist Colleen O’Reilly. Her practice focuses on the use of pattern and repetition, and colours that speak to vibrant cultures observed in her travels. The residency has allowed Hackett-Burns to explore different ideas and formats, and the work in this exhibition is a direct result of the residency. The work presented in this exhibition is hand built and the patterning is elevated through low relief carving and hand-painted designs. Hackett-Burns has taught children’s classes at the Art Gallery of Burlington for the past eight years, and her teaching often intersects with her artistic practice.
