A gold lustre cup, glass orbs, and a pair of rabbits embracing on a boat. These works are among the hundreds held in the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery’s Permanent Collection. Each one is unique, meaningful, and tied not only to the life and legacy of its maker, but also inherently connect ed to this institution and the people and events that have made it grow and change for thirty years.
Monumental shares a selection of works from the Gallery’s permanent collection, as well as two borrowed works important to the history of the institution. These works speak to the role of ceramics, glass, and vitreous enamel in Canada, and to the strength of the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery as the only institution dedicated to contemporary Canadian art in these mediums. Our success was not always guaranteed, but through the dedication and tireless work of countless individuals, the Gallery persevered and continued to rise to new heights.
Featured in this exhibition are the people, memories, and stories that have made this institution—as well as the seeds for the future. These are the legacy that lives on in the Gallery and each of these works, and the potential that they hold for the next generation of artists and makers.
This catalogue features images of each artwork in the exhibition as well as essays by Virginia Eichhorn, Peter Flannery, Denis Longchamps, Cheyenne Mapplebeck, and Katherine Marshall. Foreword by Devin Santos.
