The Winnipeg Art Gallery is marking 35 years of the Stoneware Gallery by displaying the works of 17 contemporary ceramic artists from February 7 to March 9.
WAG visitors can also sip wine from porcelain goblets or have some tea in a stoneware tumbler while they peruse the show.
“Long running co-operatives, like the Stoneware Gallery, are a vital part of the art community helping artists grow creatively and become empowered economically”, said Stephen Borys, director and CEO of the WAG. “The Stoneware Gallery has been a strong influence on the direction of ceramics nation-wide, and we are pleased to celebrate their legacy here in our own Gallery Shop.”
The free public opening reception is on Friday, February 7 from 6-9 p.m. in the Winnipeg Art Gallery Shop.
