Homegrown (Ontario Ceramics 1970-2014)


2014-15 Ongoing Exhibition

Location: Permanent Collection Corridor
Curator: Jonathan Smith

Drawn from the Permanent Collection of Canadian Ceramics, this exhibition traces the history of ceramics in Ontario over the last forty years. Starting with the refined functional ware of Ruth Gowdy McKinley and her effect on the program at Sheridan College and elsewhere, this exhibition will look at the development of the more sculptural approach by younger artists such as Reid Flock and Mary Philpott.

Magdolene Dykstra: Watch

May 24 – September 14, 2014

Location: Courtyard
Reception: Sunday June 22, 2-4pm
Curator Walk & Talk: June 22 at 2:30pm


Magdolene Dykstra, previously seen at the Art Centre in last year’s major ceramic exhibition ‘Hot Mud’, is the feature artist in this year’s courtyard installation.  Here she takes her figurative work and expands it, using the courtyard as a landscape setting.  Playing with the size of her figures, she sets up a tableau that challenges our sense of scale and our relationship to the space around us.
