Alberta in a Box: Wide Open

"What We Remember #1", porcelain by Connie Cooper
Cooper says of this work: "'What We Remember #1' references the bronzing treatment of baby shoes! On a deeper level, the piece grew out of concern for how we impact the world around us, the diminishing numbers and the extinction of some species. It is literally a bit dark. It is intended to remind ourselves that we are part of a collective environment, and that how we act or fail to act makes a difference."

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!
