WAM June 25-26 Grenfell Campus Art Show
Grenfell Campus Art Gallery in Corner Brook opened its summer exhibitions this week.
They include Salmon Run, by Urve Manuel. You may have seen this piece at the Craft Council Gallery in St. John’s recently, and Urve was a guest on this show. Salmon Run is an installation of more than 90 glass fish swimming up a glass river while a glass osprey circles overhead.
Also opening is a Learning through the Arts in Western Newfoundland exhibition, Creatures and Habitats. It is created by Grade Twos who worked with artist-facilitator Chris Short on projects exploring science through visual arts.
The third show is Rare Reflections, a two-person exhibition of the textile art of Hilary Rice married to the sculptural vessels of jeweller Wesley Harris.
I was intrigued by the team and got them into the studio. I began by asking Hilary to describe the kind of work she does … how she creates and what she creates.
