Graciously each of these artists agreed to our suggestion of sharing our gallery and exhibiting together as a sort of arranged marriage. This allows us an opportunity to share more fine craft from Atlantic Canadian artists. While these two exhibitions can be viewed separately, as with any good marriage, the partnership also offers an exciting dynamic in the pairing.
Combining warp or weft printing processes and warm natural dye hues, Halifax textile artist Frances Dorsey invites us to contemplate the moon – hunter, blue, blood or harvest - Golden Moons illuminates the compelling power these night orbs cast over our earthly existence.
The 20 works comprising Exuvia celebrate New Brunswick potter Rachel Morouney’s lifetime of dedication to her craft. Her skillfully executed intricate hand carved motifs, glazes and vessel shapes offers an inspired collection of stoneware funerary urns. Each one reflects its own unique individual characteristics, qualities and nature as a remembrance of the departed.
