Local artist to unveil art exhibition in Historic Clay District
On Friday, August 7, local artist Juliana Greaves will be hosting an opening reception for her ceramic art show, “Aerial Pursuit.” The show is scheduled to run in the Historic Clay District’s Squared Gallery from August 5 – 21. The reception will give everyone a chance to meet the artist and discuss her work.
Greaves graduated in 2008 from Emily Carr University in Vancouver with a Visual Arts degree, focusing on ceramics. For the past year, she has been travelling throughout Europe, taking part in residencies in France and Hungary before returning to Medicine Hat to participate in the Medalta International Artists in Residence (MIAIR) program. She will be attending the University of Wales, Cardiff, in the fall to pursue her Masters in Ceramics.
Greaves’ work concentrates on quality of line, simplicity of form and the relationships between objects and their environments. Aerial Pursuit is inspired by the bird’s-eye views of the Southern Albertan and Hungarian landscape – particularly fields of crops – which echo her focus on simplicity.
The Opening Reception for Aerial Pursuit runs from 7:00 – 9:00pm on Friday, August 7.
The Medalta International Artists in Residence (MIAIR) program provides artists with the opportunity to pursue their work in a unique historic setting – Medicine Hat’s Historic Clay District – which tells the story of early western Canadian industry. The residency concept gives ceramic artists the opportunity to re-enter a community atmosphere and explore new artistic directions. MIAIR has brought international attention to the city and continues its rich clay tradition through contemporary ceramics.
