The Stone Diary Project II – Oct. 5

 

Opening Reception: Friday, October 5th 6-9 pm

Café Postal, 202 Provencher Boulevard, Winnipeg, MB. 

Show runs October 5th – 19th

 

All books will be available for purchase.

The Stone Diary Project II  is a collaborative venture connecting  artists across media to create unique ceramic books.

The practice of ceramics and bookbinding are both rooted in ancient methods.  The book is a container for thoughts, ideas, memories, emotions.  Likewise, ceramics are containers too – vessels that have long been used for safe storage of sustenance.  Both book and ceramic are functional objects that frequently serve in sacred ways.

Precious and safe yet ultimately fragile, these objects are meant to foster a sense of contemplation.

“There are chapters in every life which are seldom read, and certainly not aloud.”

Carol Shields, The Stone Diaries

To view last year’s project go to Stone Diary Project I.

This year the Studio 6 Ceramics’ Warm & Bright Show and Sale has expanded to include the entire ARTlington Studios building! Warm & Bright will now feature three floors of over 20 professional Winnipeg artists creating contemporary works for homes and business alike; painting, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, photographs and more.
On Saturday December 3 from 12 – 2pm we will be joined by the lovely and talented Anne-Marie Williot of Chez Willi ! If you plan your visit for this time, be prepared for Anne-Marie to lead you on a journey to a land of cobble stone street and candle-lit cafes. Weaving memorable melodies with relate-able lyrics, Anne-Marie is well known to have everyone laughing, crying and singing along in her presence.

And if all that isn’t enough, those of you familiar with Warm & Bright will know to expect our signature sangria being served throughout the sale in our studio.
