Join us on March 15 for an opening celebrating two exhibitions: Ian Johnston’s Fine Line: Check Check & Earth, Fire and Water from the Potters Addict Ceramic Arts Studio. The event runs from 6 to 8pm, with light snacks available.

Ian Johnston will give an artist talk at 8pm.

Fine Line: Check Check is an investigation of the role of doubt in mass culture. Johnston considers the emotionally-charged relationship viewers have with screens and digital devices. The installation harnesses the knee-jerk nature of our conditioned responses to visual and auditory cues; such as the pinging of a smartphone, or the nostalgia of silent film.  Fine Line: Check Check will be on view at the Alternator from March 15 to April 27, 2019.

Potters Addict Ceramic Art Centre was created because of the need and passion to educate others on the therapeutic and creative value of clay. Transforming  a lump of mud into an object which can be delicate, or strong, decorative or rustic,  monumental or miniature, all of which have a unique personal character and role. Earth, Fire, and Water explores the material process of clay artwork while showcasing sculptures from Potters Addict Members of all experience levels. Earth, Fire, and Water will be on display from March 15 to April 6, 2019.
