‘Selfie:’ Ceramics exhibit at Cultural Centre showcasing Saskatchewan potters

A new exhibition from Sask Terra members at the Cultural Centre explores the idea of the “selfie” in the medium of pottery

An exhibition from the non-profit ceramicist organization Sask Terra is now on display at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre, featuring pottery pieces by artists from all over Saskatchewan. 

The exhibition is titled SELFIE, and it asked contributing artists to interpret the theme in their own individual ways to create a series of interesting pieces. 

SELFIE is comprised of 22 ceramic pieces from 10 different artists, submitted to Sask Terra jurors Ken Wilkinson and Lorraine Sutter for selection in the show, including Saskatoon potters Teresa Bzowy and Lorraine Sutter.

Jenny Diller, known for her horsehair pottery, is also featured and jurors named “It’s All About Me” by Watrous potter Linda Leslie as best in show. 

Pieces in the show range from wheel-thrown vessels to hand-sculpted work, glazed in varying techniques in a myriad of colours. Each piece represents the artist’s own perspective of what “selfie” means to them.

SELFIE debuted at the beginning of December and will remain available to view until Jan. 16.

Sask Terra was founded in 1997 and operates as a non-profit to develop and promote the works of local Saskatchewan ceramic artists. Both professional and non-professional artists from all over Saskatchewan are welcome to become members of the organization. 

The Mosaic Art Gallery is located on the main floor of the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is no admission cost to visit the gallery.
