The Campbell River Art Gallery is hosting an exhibition of ceramic pieces by second and third year students taking courses in the Fine Arts Department at North Island College’s Comox Campus.
Fifteen students, along with instructor Alan Burgess, have created unique ceramic works that are on display in the gallery’s satellite display cases until March 6. Local ceramicist and NIC student, Sylvia McGourlick, coordinated this body of work.
The exhibition reflects the wide range of work produced in the ceramic studio, from small to larger scale pieces, as well as functional and more artistic sculptural ceramics.
North Island College’s ceramic studio is well equipped to allow each student’s imagination and talent to flourish. There is a large gas car kiln as well as several sizes of electric kilns, a number of wheels, slab rollers, extruders and a variety of glaze materials. Ceramic courses are offered at introductory and intermediate levels. There is also an opportunity for more advanced explorations through the independent studies option and the new Professional Potter Advanced Diploma program which includes business, marketing, and residency components.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to view a sampling of this talented group of emerging artisans and artists. The Gallery, located at 1235 Shoppers Row, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12-5pm.
