WHAT’S ON

60 by 60

August 1, 2018 to September 16, 2018

Location: RBC Gallery
Public reception: Sunday September 9, 1pm-3pm
Guest Curator: Denis Longchamps

Over 60 years, one can create a large body of work. When that “one” is the Burlington Handweavers and Spinners Guild (BHSG), the body of work is huge and wide-ranging. This year the BHSG is celebrating and acknowledging their 60 years as a guild. The exhibition will showcase a 60 piece collection of spinning, dyeing, beading, felting, weaving, and knitting, created by members past and present.


Round: Bowls & Vases

August 4, 2018 to October 7, 2018

Location: Permanent Collection Corridor
Public reception: Friday September 21, 6pm-9pm

Many ceramic artists have spoken about how the potter’s wheel has affected the expressive qualities of the medium by imposing a mechanical quality on their work. This exhibition will explore how the limitations of the round thrown form, has become an opportunity to explore the clay medium within a set of boundaries. Two of the most common thrown forms, bowl and vases, with skillful manipulation can become alive under the practiced hand of the master potter.

Patron’s Choice

August 4, 2018 to October 21, 2018

Location: Perry Gallery
Public reception: Friday September 21, 6pm-9pm

Working with the Permanent Collection Curator, patrons and donors Bonnie Sylvia and Louise Cooke who have supported the Collection over the years, will curate a small selection of work from the Collection to address an area of their interest. This is an opportunity to see how personal preferences help organize one’s ideas around collecting.
