Alberta in a Box: Wide Open

"Tar Sands Disposables", detail, Louise Cormier
Cormier describes her work this way: "The form reflects the influence of Japanese sources and Canadian artists working in this direction such as Robert Froese. The surface treatment, in this case, is influenced by printing and mixed media traditions, as well as, the narrative as a form of social communication."

This piece is part of Alberta In a Box: Wide Open, a juried travelling exhibition of whimsical and elegant clay work by 39 members of the Alberta Potters Association. The show runs until April 14 with a closure on April 6 & 7 for Easter. The Visual Arts Alberta Gallery is open Wed-Fri 10-4 and Sat 12-4 pm. Drop by for a visit!
