A Month of Ceramics @ Willock and Sax Gallery



Bradley Keys - Grounded

Reception, November 3, 3 to 5 pm
Artist Talk 3:30


Banff, Alberta:  November is once again the month to focus on ceramics at the Willock & Sax Gallery.  This year we feature Bradley Keys, who explores the geography of Western Canada in Grounded.  Our group show The Makings III includes artists such as Ed Bamiling, Neil Liske, Robin Dupont, Emily Schroeder Willis, Do-Hee Sung and many other ceramics artists.  Join us for Grounded and The Makings III at the Willock & Sax Gallery starting November 1 through to 30th. 

Bradley Keys enjoys the interplay of his work with clay and the 3D aspects of our surrounding geography.  As we move within our environment, so we interact with his works, taking in all the various viewpoints and responses that involvement in place offers.  The forms and glazes of Bradley’s hand-built ceramic pieces incorporate the rhythms and colors of the prairie and the mountains.  This artist loves the land and offers us opportunities to take a bit of it home to enjoy and cherish.

Join us for the Reception at the Willock & Sax Gallery, 210 Bear St, in Banff on Saturday, November 3 from 3-5 pm.

November 1 – 30 and continuing through until Christmas

Les Manning

Gallery Talks
The Artist and The Curator
Saturday, November 24, 3-5 pm


As part of our Month of Ceramics and coinciding with the November 24 reception for the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies exhibition
"Les Manning Common/Opposite"
(November 7-December 5),
we are pleased to have Les Manning and Joanne Marion (curator, Esplanade) speaking about the exhibition and ceramics in general at our gallery.

Continue the discussion down Bear Street at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies reception at 7 pm.

Manning’s new works show a rich emotional and metaphorical register while drawing deeply upon his personal experiences and knowledge of Canada’s lands. Juxtaposing forms, textures and colours, Manning evokes the monumental reach of modernism as an artistic endeavour. Playful references to the humble objects of everyday lighten his sophisticated and contemporary appreciation of the more base aspects of nature, to reveal the rich and contradictory poetry of our ordinary world.
