WATERLOO (ONTARIO) CANADA. September 18, 2018: The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery launches its fall exhibitions with a week of events: an Artist Talk by Susan Low-Beer on Saturday, September 22, followed by the opening reception of Low-Beer’s retrospective exhibition Embodiment, as well as Earthborn 2018 on Sunday, September 23. The Gallery Shop’s fall FUSE Feature with artist Wayne Cardinalli follows the Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, September 26.

Embodiment: 30 Years of Sculpture by Susan Low-Beer

Co-curated by Jasmina Jovanovic and Stuart Reid, Embodiment is a 30-year retrospective of ceramic sculpture by Governor General’s Award-winning artist Susan Low-Beer. Recurring themes include identity and mortality as well as the simultaneous power and vulnerability of the body. Also on view is an adjoining exhibition of new works from Low-Beer’s Specimen series, curated by Sheila McMath.

Susan Low-Beer received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Mount Allison University and her Masters of Fine Arts in the United States at the Cranbrook Academy of Art with a major in painting. She has exhibited internationally in Europe, United States, Japan and Korea, as well as nationally in both juried and invitational exhibitions and has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards. In 1999 she received the Saidye Bronfman Award for Excellence in the Crafts and in 2000 was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. She currently teaches and works in Toronto.

Susan Low-Beer will present an Artist Talk on Saturday, September 22 at 7:00pm before the public opening of the exhibition on Sunday, September 23 from 2:00 to 5:00pm. These events are free and all are welcome.

This exhibition has been made possible in part by a contribution from the Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation - The Musagetes Fund.

The exhibition is organized and circulated by the Art Gallery of Algoma and generously funded through the Department of Canadian Heritage, Museums Assistance Program. Nous reconnaissons l’appui financier du gouvernement du Canada.

Earthborn 2018

Earthborn is an annual, juried exhibition of works by members of the Waterloo Potters’ Workshop (WPW), a non-profit co-operative organization celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year. Established in 1968, WPW is located in Waterloo Park and occupies the historic Jacob Eby farmhouse, which functions as a work/learn space for members and a teaching facility for the public.

This year's juror is Scott Barnim, a Dundas-based potter. Barnim obtained his MFA in Ceramics from the Cardiff Metropolitan University, School of Art and Design, Wales, and in 2016 received the lifetime achievement award from the City of Hamilton Arts Awards.

The Earthborn reception and awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, September 23 at 1:30pm.

Both exhibitions continue to December 28, 2018. Learn more about the exhibitions and artists at

FUSE Feature: The Sculptural Teapots of Wayne Cardinalli

FUSE, an ongoing initiative of the Gallery Shop at The Clay & Glass, is a diverse exhibition series featuring selected works for sale, created by Gallery Shop artists and special guests. The fall series will feature a selection of sculptural teapots by artist Wayne Cardinalli.

Wayne Cardinalli has been a full-time professional potter for over 50 years. An accident several years ago forced Wayne away from the wheel towards hand building, incorporating strong textural/gestural elements. A whole new way of working and thinking emerged, combining thrown elements with textured slabs. The result is a powerful sense of the artist’s hand working the clay, exploring its sculptural potential while still referencing its functional inspiration.

Please join us at the Gallery for the Opening Reception on Wednesday, September 26. The event begins at 7:00pm with remarks at 7:30.
