Coming of Age: The Graduates

Gillian Mitchell, "Untitled", 14" x 23" x 12", clay and wood
Alberta College of Art & Design grad Mitchell says of her process: Different approaches are taken from different artists, I choose to mimic nature not close to me and create forms and vessels that capture the essence of bark, stalagmites, coral and even cliffs.  I make my vessel forms simply to lift ones spirits or make them smile as they enter a room and see a familiar shape, colour, or texture.

"Coming of Age: The Graduates" is a group show featuring the work of recent art school graduates. Ten artists were selected from five Albertan communities: Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Grande Prairie, and Lethbridge. The show opens to the public on June 7 with an official opening reception on Thursday, June 21 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.
