Victoria and Fired-Up! Axis of Art

Time is starting to accelerate. Only a few more days before Brian and I head off to Victoria for the opening of the Fired-Up! 27th anniversary exhibition at the Metchoisin Community Centre at 4401 William Head Road. I am really looking forward to this event. It has been in the works for a year now and all the hard work of the Fired-Up! members is about to bear fruit. This is a first as not only will there be incredible work by the eleven core members but for the first time there will be work by other leading ceramic artists. Brian and I have sent work by Reed Weir (NL), Judy Blake (NB), Goyer-Bonneau RCA (PQ), Zsuzsa Monostory (ON), as well as a number of other artists.

Another reason for excitement is the soft launch of "Walter Dexter - Studio Artist" the first in a series of books on Canadian ceramic artists authored by myself. Using Walter's incredible torso vases as a catalyst for the story the book will trace his career from its beginnings in Alberta up to now. A remarkable artist this lavishly illustrated book is a must-have for anyone interested in the rich history of ceramic art in Canada.

Join us opening night, Thursday May 26th,  starting at 6PM>
