And with only hours left for you to take advantage of my pre-order deal.
You've got until the end of the day thursday the 30th of September to get your copy with the discount. I'll be shipping them out early next week.
There is so much to talk about this week I hardly know where to start and hopefully I won't forget any details. To begin with, yesturday was the install day for my exhibition here in Saskatoon (woohoo hometown show!) with Robin Lambert and Jody Greenman-Barber. You'll likely remember Robin from my tales of the residency at Medalta this summer. We both spent the month working on this exhibition in studios side by side and blogging the process simultaneously. A curious process indeed. Very public...very vulnerable.
I've long wanted to show with these two artist so yesturday was a very exciting day indeed. The show boasts three very different bodies of work, each in their own way exploring the current climate of craft practice, technique and installation. I think it came together quite well despite my initial fears that the install of three such different styles within one space would be problematic and disjointed.
But i reckon the install was a success and as always for a stay at home mom, a day out and about with a fellow artist, chatting about art and even getting to eat lunch in an old favorite pub was quite the treat.
Here's some of the work in progress at the end. Days of glueing out enjoying the beautiful fall we're having here lately.
Contemplative Robin with some of his work.
A gallery shot, i'll show some better ones once the show is lit properly.
Some of Jody's incredible dancing pots.
But this isn't the only instance of blogs colliding this week. I am also very pleased to announce the opening of the Clay and Blogs exhibition I was invited to participate in.
From the Website:
Curated by Meredith Heywood of Whynot Pottery
Take a glimpse into a unique community of 50 working potters who are separated by distance, but brought together through the common language of clay and the written word in a digital world. These potters share their lives, skills, thoughts, triumphs and defeats through an on-line medium called a blog or web log.
Plan to join us for an exciting show in October as we bring their diverse styles of individual work together. For a list of the potters and their blogs, scroll down.
In addition, most of the Clay and Blogs potters are offering a piece for sale exclusively online. Click here to view our very first online gallery.
Opening Reception: Friday, October 1, 2010, 6 to 8 p.m.
Exhibition Dates: October 1-29, 2010
Weekday Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Online Gallery Dates: September 1-October 29, 2010 Online Gallery Hours: Everyday, All day."
If you go to the website (here) you'll find a comprehensive list of the participating artists plus links to each of their blogs. So many amazing artists...Meredith in particular has just been amazing organizing all of this, so if you live anywhere nearby please do take the time to go and check out the show. I sooo wish I could be there. So many bloggers out there become good friends through the sharing of their lives, art, practice with others. Would be an honor to meet them in person.
Here's some images of the pieces I sent:
Okay that's enough for now. Back to the studio, but more news to come...

University of Alberta
Material Culture Institute
This interdisciplinary conference will explore the varied expressions of craft – material, cultural, social – in past and present societies. Craft practice has a rich history and remains vibrant today, sustaining communities while negotiating cultures. Craft-made goods were, and are, created for domestic or institutional use, for local or international markets. They express gender roles and cultural aspirations, sustain economies, and express aesthetic values and skills of making. Craft practice has long defined communities and groups, and continues to do so in the midst of global trade networks. Moreover, the flow of ideas, goods, and peoples animate the making, circulation, and meaning of craft goods. These and other issues will be addressed over the course of the conference.

|Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg will host the first Figurative Association: The Human Form in Clay symposium this October.|
Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts has announced it will host a figurative sculpture symposium and exhibitions on its Gatlinburg campus from October 27-30, 2010. Figurative Association: The Human Form in Clay will feature nine internationally and nationally known ceramic and mixed media artists from six states who use the figure as the main theme in their sculpture. This event grew out of Arrowmont’s successful Utilitarian Clay: Celebrate the Object national symposia held every four years since 1992. Arrowmont’s rich history as a leader in art and craft education includes hosting international and national media related conferences and symposia over the past 45 years.
The artist/presenters include Tom Bartel and Janis Mars Wunderlich from Ohio, Robert Brady, and Arthur Gonzalez from California, Debra Fritts from Georgia, Tip Toland and Beth Cavener Stichter from Washington, Lisa Clague from North Carolina and Anne Drew Potter from Indiana.
A series of lectures, panel topic discussions, demonstrations and gallery exhibitions celebrating the human form will make up the three-day symposium. Additionally, each artist/presenter has invited an emerging figurative sculptor of their choice to be represented in the Invited Artists Exhibition, which will be one of the highlights of the event.
The Presenters’ Exhibition will consist of major works by the nine symposium presenters. In all, both exhibitions will showcase a total of 37 different creations by the 19 artist/presenters and the invited emerging artists. The exhibitions will be located in the Sandra J. Blain Gallery at Arrowmont and will be open for the public to view.
“One vital, educational component of this symposium is the identification of 10 emerging artists in the ceramic sculpture field and the invitation to exhibit their work alongside the highly respected national Presenters’ Exhibition,” said Arrowmont Program Director Bill Griffith, adding, “This again speaks to Arrowmont’s commitment as a leader in education and support in promoting the careers of the next generation of artists.”
Limited to 200 attendees, symposia and conferences at Arrowmont offer a more relaxed, intimate and focused setting for engaging dialogue, critical discourse and attendee interaction to occur. The unique mountain setting with galleries, studios, auditorium, housing and dining facilities in close proximity encourages ongoing conversations among artists, students, educators and collectors. Registration is on-going. Please call our registrar Cynthia Bellacome at 865-436-5860 x33.

Italian sculptor Alessandro Gallo comes to Chicago to participate in a month-long residency and instruct a 3-day workshop in figurative ceramic sculpture.
Alessandro Gallo is an Italian artist currently residing in Genoa, Italy. After studying Law at the University of Genoa, Alessandro moved to London where he studied at Central St Martin’s College of Art; followed by a BA at Chelsea School of Art, graduating in 2002. Since 2002, his work has been exhibited at Jill George Gallery and in group shows in London and Italy. His artwork has also been featured in major art fairs in the UK and the US. In 2003,2005 and 2006, Gallo exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. In 2006 his first solo exhibition was held at Jill George Gallery and the second solo show in February 2008. His work features human/animal hybrids, across many media and especially clay. Animals have biological features and behavioral patterns that can be extended to humans, lending themselves to embody humorously- the basic disposition of a person, his kernel or 'nature'. For more information and pictures of the work, visit www.alessandrogallo.net
Alessandro will hold a workshop at Lillstreet clay studio in Lakeside, Michigan (70 miles north of Chicago). Daily sessions will focus on fundamentals of how to create a sculpture, taking an idea and making it real. Demonstrations, talks and slideshows will be accompanied by hands-on experimentation. Pieces completed by participants will be fired after the workshop and available for pickup within four weeks.

1000 MILES APART
A LITTLE HISTORY
The Red Deer College Ceramics Program is hosting the annual 1000 Miles Apart conference October 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 2010. This conference was first organized in 1989 by faculty and students from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg and Red Deer College, Alberta. The distance between the institutions was the origin of the name 1000 Miles Apart. Participating institutions later included the University of Regina and Alberta College of Art + Design. Each year the conference is organized collectively and rotates to a new host institution for that year. It provides an excellent opportunity for students and faculty to meet and network, and creates a valuable forum to develop and strengthen the ceramics community in Western Canada. Members of the public, along with University of Regina, Red Deer College, and University of Manitoba, students and faculty from nearby Ceramics Programs are also invited to attend the conference events.

FROM OCTOBER 7
UNTIL JANUARY 30, 2011,
AT TORONTO'S GARDINER MUSEUM
BREAKING BOUNDARIES presents four young Canadian artists whose work challenges our perceptions and expectations about materials, form, function and meaning. The four artists – Shary Boyle, Marc Courtemanche, Carmela Laganse, and Brendan Tang – create works that are both accessible and ambiguous. They are accessible because they draw on objects and images familiar to us from our popular culture. They are ambiguous because it is not always clear what the works are made of, what their forms and functions are, and what stories or meanings they convey.
This combination of accessibility and ambiguity requires viewers to engage actively with the works of art in order to appreciate them fully. The works are not merely demonstrations of technical skill, expressions of the artists’ personalities, or didactic statements about specific aspects of our culture. Rather, they are catalysts that encourage viewers to draw on their own memories, experiences, assumptions and imaginations to create meaning and significance.
In this way, the works in the exhibition break down the boundaries between artist and audience, and transform the gallery visit into a truly democratic experience.
In keeping with the dynamic quality of the art, Breaking Boundaries will include spaces in the installation and on the Museum’s website where visitors will have opportunities to respond to the artworks, to create their own artworks, and to engage with each other through the artworks. Come and be part of this exciting exhibition.
Breaking Boundaries is curated by Gardiner Museum Chief Curator Charles Mason. It is complemented by a 56-page catalogue of the exhibition published in 2010 by the Gardiner Museum.

"american design duo nervous system (jessica rosenkrantz and jesse louis-rosenberg) has a new collection of lamps and porcelain pieces entitled 'reaction', which combine nature, science and technology, through new 3D printing materials and interactive media.
'reaction' is based on a chemical patterning system called 'reaction-diffusion' which describes a hypothesized mechanism for the synthesis of the diverse patterning seen on animals ranging from zebra stripes and giraffe spots to the complex coloring of tropical fish. reaction-diffusion models substances that are diffusing , or spreading; these substances also react with each other to create new substances. the collection of pieces employs a computer simulation of this process to generate forms which were at once abstract and organic, reminding us of the patterns we see throughout the natural world. the 'reaction' line features slip-cast ceramic housewares and 3D printed lamps."
