Award-winning ceramic artist Lindsay Montgomery is known for her contemporary interpretations of Medieval and Renaissance imagery. Her work is featured in the exhibition Renaissance Venice: Life and Luxury at the Crossroads. Watch Montgomery stream live from the studio and get a peek into her fascinating process.


Lindsay Montgomery works across a variety of media including ceramics, painting, and puppetry to create narrative videos, performances, and objects. Her work is focused on creating personal mythologies that address topics and issues including death and mysticism, feminism, and evolving modes of power. She earned a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and received her MFA from the University of Minnesota. Her work has been exhibited in Canada and internationally with exhibitions at the Gardiner Museum and The Archie Bray Foundation. She is the recipient of numerous awards including The Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics, The Joyce Carlyle Memorial Scholarship in the Crafts Endowment, and an individual project grant from The Canada Council for the Arts. Her work is included in the permanent collections of The Musée Des Beaux Arts in Montreal, The Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery in Waterloo, and the Gardiner Museum for Ceramics in Toronto. She currently lives and works in Toronto, and is represented by Galerie 3, in Canada, and Galerie Lefebvre et Fils, in France.


Renaissance Venice was a multicultural metropolis where migration and mobility shaped the daily lives of its inhabitants. Its position at the crossroads of trade routes linking Europe to the Islamic World brought a continuous flow of commodities like pigments, spices, and luxury objects. In the homes of Venetians, these imported goods complemented locally-made products like maiolica, or tin-glazed earthenware. Renaissance Venice: Life and Luxury at the Crossroads recreates a sensory world of objects, from Chinese porcelain and Islamic metalware to Venetian textiles and glass. Learn more
