Artist Meet and Greet: January 26, 12 – 1 pm

Marney McDiarmid’s whimsical ceramic spoons evoke a sense of comfort, calm, and connection. In 2017, she was awarded “Best in Show” at the FUSION Clay and Glass exhibit in Toronto, and in 2019, she received an Ontario Arts Council grant. McDiarmid will also be teaching a clay workshop for intermediate and advanced potters on January 25. Register now!

Denise Smith
January – February

Denise Smith’s miniature ceramic scenes reflect the intersection between urban and natural environments. Close inspection reveals unexpected details like clear cut forests or muskrats living in storm drains. Smith is a graduate of the University of Regina’s Master of Fine Arts program and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Lakehead University.
