Ceramic artist Catharina Goldnau, Sheridan College graduate and recipient of the 2018 Gardiner Museum Award, presents recent work in this lobby display.
About the Artist
Catharina grew up in northern Germany, close to the East German border. In Canada, she pursued an academic career in English Literature and Spanish, as well as earning an MA in Applied Psychology. After teaching French Immersion at the elementary level and raising four children, Goldnau went on to explore her passion for art at the Central Tech Adult Art Program in Toronto. A love affair with clay led her to become a full-time student at Sheridan College where she recently graduated with a BA in Craft and Design with a Specialty in Ceramics.
