Now in its 19th year, the Toronto Potters Biennial Exhibition continues to be a leading event in our members’ calendars. We are again partnering with the Gardiner Museum to bring our members and the public the best of Toronto Potters’ work.
The Juried Show: will showcase and promote the best sculptural and functional ceramics produced by Toronto Potters members. Participants can submit up to 3 pieces which fall into either category: “For Use” and ‘Of Expression”. Works juried into the show will be selected based on their creative expression, originality as well as technical merits, and will be eligible to win one of multiple awards. These works will be displayed and sold in the Gardiner Museum Gift shop. Entry fee: $45.00 plus updated membership.
Jurors: Angelo diPetta, Professor Emeritus at Faculty of Design, OCADU
Jess Riva Cooper, MFA, Adjunct Professor at Department of Craft and Design, Sheridan College
The Survey Show: will coincide with an exhibition to be held at the Gardiner Museum, True Nordic: How Scandinavia Influenced Design in Canada and is open to all members of Toronto Potters. Participants are encouraged to submit 1 or 2 pieces designed in response to the ideas and concepts of Scandinavian design which prioritizes functionality without eliminating grace and beauty – minimalist, clean simple lines, accessible.
The submissions for the Survey Show will be exhibited together in the Gardiner museum lobby at the Biennial opening, and afterwards they will be offered for sale at the Gardiner Museum Gift shop. Entry fee: updated membership.
