Opening Thursday June 2nd 7pm
(show runs until June 18th)

 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.

Close observations of nature collide with the forms and realities of
urban life. Experimentation with raw materials is unearthing memories,
reshaping personal metaphors and once-familiar landscapes. Through
photography, video, pottery and sculpture, these artists unsettle
established ways of thinking and making.

Are small transgressions the slippery slope to bad behavior?
These conversations offer diverse interpretations of play, threat,
beauty, gesture, sexuality, parenthood, family, community and
environment. In sharing ideas and concerns, examining potential pitfalls
and solutions, this group of makes has in many ways sped up their
artistic research, yet slowed the impulse to cast judgment. Fearlessly,
gently tending to bright wounds of doubt, these artists have created
bodies of work that articulate distinct visions in the contemporary
context.
