The Fusion conference is in London Ontario this year and in appreciation of the many Fusion members that we represent we are having a special exhibition dedicated to Fusion members. It opens Thursday, May 24th. We have been busily assembling the work for what is shaping up to be an excellent exhibition. This will also be the first time in the history of the gallery that I will not be here for the opening! I will be in Victoria. To be honest it is a bit strange to think that I will not be present but I am very fortunate to have an excellent gallery manager. Brian Cooke will be hosting the opening. Brian has been with the gallery now for almost eight years so I know everything will be great.
We are also happy to announce that Bruce Taylor will be showing with us. The upcoming exhibition is the first time he has exhibited with us. I am also thrilled to say that Kirsten Abrahamson will also have a piece in the show. Kirsten has only recently joined the gallery and her first pieces sold out in a day so we are looking forward to seeing some more work from her. For those of you unfamiliar with her work: you are in for a treat!
Also stay tuned to this page for information on our annual August exhibition "Yesterday and Today". It will feature the work of 25 of Canada's top ceramic artists. They will be showcasing one historical piece and one contemporary piece. This will be an excellent opportunity for collectors to acquire some truly innovative work!
Signing off for now!
