HEAVY SHINE emerges from an ongoing collaboration between Toronto-based ceramic artist Dianne Lee and New Orleans-based visual artist Robyn LeRoy-Evans. Lee and LeRoy-Evans investigate their relationship to materials and their bodies, using their hands to throw pots, and to drape and thread fabrics. The work is presented as a collaborative, multimedia installation of collage, drawing, ceramic vessels, portraiture, still lifes, and arranged tableaus that speak to the process-based relationships between the artists, as well as their shared interest in the domestic object and contemporary conversations around women working together.


CONTACT is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to celebrating and fostering the art and profession of photography with an annual Festival in May and year-round programming in the CONTACT Gallery. CONTACT embraces an inclusive and accessible approach to the medium, and cultivates collaborations with and among artists, curators, institutions, and organizations.
