PUSH: Mentorship Exhibition
The Living Arts Centre hosts the culminating exhibition of FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association’s newly launched Glass Mentorship Program. It features new works by nine artists selected for the program under the direction of Koen Vanderstukken, a renowned glass artist and educator. In this exhibition artists capture a sense of balance, energy, and a close examination of the world around them.
The FUSION mentorship was a very unique experience in a sense that we got to work with mature artists over an extended period of time. It allowed us to approach complex subject matters and investigate the roots of creative thinking and making. It was a pleasure to see how everybody motivated and inspired each other and to witness the individual growth of participants. I hope they will continue this process and take their work to new heights.
