Fourteen artists present new works that disturb the boundaries of their individual practices. Through critical reflection and collaborative exchange, unexpected themes and forms have emerged over a ten month mentorship program led by Linda Sormin, and programmed by FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association.
The new work we produced over our 10 months together grew out of a rigorous, experimental process. Linda will be choosing pieces from each of us for our upcoming group exhibition that opens Sept 3, 2015: Small Transgressions at Craft Ontario Gallery. Exhibition runs til Oct 31, 2015. The thumbnail images below represent just a sample of our individual projects.
