Taking place from July 28 to August 25, 2012 at MADE in Toronto, Half a Dozen is an exhibition featuring the work of six students of ceramics from Sheridan College’s Craft & Design program – Jessie McEwen, Andrea Poorter, Lyne Reid, Annemarie Row, Emma Smith and Nurielle Stern. Inspired by the association of ceramics to domestic life throughout history, these six artists draw upon the power of everyday objects to become intimate parts of our lives.
Six of one, half a dozen of the other: these six artists present six different explorations of ceramic materials linked by a thread of domestic life and the stories that household objects could tell. Each set of objects has metamorphosed from its real-life counterpart, exhibiting a playful rearrangement, reinterpretation, or retelling of form, function and purpose.
Exhibition hours are as follows: Tuesday to Friday from 11:00am – 7:00pm, and Saturday from 11:00am – 6:00pm. The opening reception takes place on Saturday August 11, 2012 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at MADE, located at 867 Dundas Street West in Toronto.
