On Friday, November 10, from 6-9 pm, the gorgeous, domed atrium of the Glebe Community Centre will open its doors to visitors eager to be among the first to view this year’s new work. The 260 Fingers vernissage is open to everyone and is truly a festive celebration of ceramic work complete with music, food, drink, and lively conversation. The show continues Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12 from 10 am – 5 pm. Artists will be present all weekend. Tours of the show are each afternoon at 2 pm and offer an opportunity to hear about each artist’s unique work and processes and to ask any questions you may have about their work and studio practice.
The event features numerous award-winning artists with international followings, who have had significant exhibitions locally and internationally. Each of the artists views 260 Fingers as a welcome opportunity to present their newest and in many cases, most daring or challenging work. Each year new guests are invited to participate to help keep 260 Fingers fresh. This year, there are 12 guest artists, including Bruce Cochrane, a well-known teacher and mentor from Sheridan College who is joining us for the first time. As usual, there are a wide range of styles and firing methods, from wood firing to salt glazed, from functional to sculptural.
