Alexandra McCurdy. Bowls at the Gardiner. January 2018.
If you haven’t done it yet make sure you catch Alexandra’s exhibition and sale in the Gardiner Museum shop. Yes, that’s the shop! The works are classic McCurdy, including her iconic boxes and bowls. Alexandra has a long relationship with the Gardiner. In fact, 30 years ago, as the first artist displayed in the shop, Peter Gzowski opened her show, a huge success, and interviewed her on Morningside. She was, therefore, invited to be the January 2018 featured artist to celebrate the Gardiner shop’s 30 years of operation.
The exhibition and sale run for the month of January. A must see for collectors and McCurdy fans!
Based on many of the enquiries I have received I am thinking about adding a section on ‘Signatures, Marks, Chops’ to the studioceramicscanada.com website. Would this be of interest and value to you, artists, collectors, readers and followers?
Let me know your thoughts by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or commenting below on this post.
I have just received a post from CHIN, the Canadian Information Heritage Network that discusses two new sites that might be of interest to Canadian ceramists and collectors who want a wider visual presence on the internet.
The CHIN page has a pretty complete description of the pros and cons of a new site called Curiator. But the CHIN page also mentions a slightly older (2013) site, Artsy, and even the “old” standby Pinterest. Generally images can be posted and shared. On all three setting up an account is required
Curiator bills itself as the world’s biggest art collaboratrive; Artsy states its mission is “to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an Internet connection, a resource for art collecting and education”. Although the sites give a first impression of being devoted to “Fine Art” there are sections for contemporary ceramics.
Check them out at the links above and let me know if you think they are worthwhile.
