A Month of Ceramics @ Willock and Sax Gallery


Bradley Keys – Grounded

Reception, November 3, 3 to 5 pm
Artist Talk 3:30

Banff, Alberta:

 November is once again the month to
focus on ceramics at the Willock & Sax Gallery.  This year we
feature Bradley Keys, who explores the geography of Western Canada in Grounded.  Our group show The Makings III
includes artists such as Ed Bamiling, Neil Liske, Robin Dupont, Emily
Schroeder Willis, Do-Hee Sung and many other ceramics artists.  Join us
for Grounded and The Makings III at the Willock & Sax Gallery starting November 1 through to 30th. 

Bradley Keys enjoys the interplay of his work with clay and the 3D
aspects of our surrounding geography.  As we move within our
environment, so we interact with his works, taking in all the various
viewpoints and responses that involvement in place offers.  The forms
and glazes of Bradley’s hand-built ceramic pieces incorporate the
rhythms and colors of the prairie and the mountains.  This artist loves
the land and offers us opportunities to take a bit of it home to enjoy
and cherish.

Join us for the Reception at the Willock & Sax Gallery, 210 Bear St, in Banff on Saturday, November 3 from 3-5 pm.

Les Manning

Gallery Talks
The Artist and The Curator
Saturday, November 24, 3-5 pm

As part of our Month of Ceramics and coinciding with the November
24 reception for the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies exhibition

Les Manning Common/Opposite
(November 7-December 5),
we are pleased to have Les Manning and Joanne Marion (curator, Esplanade) speaking about the exhibition and ceramics in general at our gallery.

Continue the discussion down Bear Street at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies reception at 7 pm.

Manning’s new works show a rich emotional and metaphorical register
while drawing deeply upon his personal experiences and knowledge of
Canada’s lands. Juxtaposing forms, textures and colours, Manning evokes
the monumental reach of modernism as an artistic endeavour. Playful
references to the humble objects of everyday lighten his sophisticated
and contemporary appreciation of the more base aspects of nature, to
reveal the rich and contradictory poetry of our ordinary world.
