Alberta in a Box: Wide Open

"Chinook", stoneware by Ed Bamiling
Bamiling says: "I wondered how I might reference the wind while using components which are very much of the earth. Winters can be long in the Rockies, but one of the mitigating forces to it is the Chinook wind, which blows (relatively) warm air and car raise the temperature by 20 or 30 degrees in a matter of hours. It is often accompanied by a Chinook Arch, a very distinctive band of cloud stretching across the sky, with a definite leading edge to it."

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!
