AGB Ceramics Residency: Karla Rivera

May 30, 2018 to June 27, 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.

Mundialization: Student Art Exchange

mundialization

April 26, 2018 to May 27, 2018

Location: RBC Gallery

In conjunction with the City of Burlington’s Mundialization Committee, the AGB presents a display of student artwork from Sir Ernest MacMillan Public 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.
