Opening Reception: May 23rd 6 - 9 pm
High Fire Culture features the work of West Coast potters Lari Robson, Sam Kwan, Andrew Wong, Ron Vallis, Cris Giuffrida, Heinz Laffin, Vincent Massey, Martin Peters, and Hiro Urakami. Their artistic development and practice are linked by the aesthetic sensibilities and philosophy put forth by British potter Bernard Leach and his Japanese colleague Shoji Hamada. The exhibition will include over one hundred retrospective pots, as well as a collection of educational and archival material including historical photographs, videos, reference books, and a Leach kick-wheel.
High Fire Culture is curated by Nora Vaillant and Shelly Rosenblum and is organized by the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery at the University of British Columbia, and Satellite Gallery.
