Alberta in a Box: Wide Open

"Year of the Rabbit: Hare's Victory Lap", porcelain/stoneware blend by Lisa McGrath
McGrath says: "This year is the year of the Rabbit according to the Chinese calendar. Being born in the year of the Rabbit myself, I thought that I would pay homage to this quirky little creature by creating my own alternate ending to the old fable of the tortoise and the hare."

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!
