Seventy-two local artists and ceramists will be presenting works in this year’s celebration of the creativity and talent of members of the Hat Art Club and the Medicine Hat Potters Association. A longstanding tradition at the Art Gallery for 18 years, this exhibition gives a glimpse into the dedication and imagination of Medicine Hat’s own artists and artisans, conveyed through a wide variety of subjects, media and techniques, from landscapes, abstraction and portraits, to vessels and sculptures.
Many of the artists and ceramists in the exhibition this year have chosen to create work which marks Canada’s 150th anniversary, while all have pursued their personal subjects and mediums with skill, dedication and enthusiasm. The Medicine Hat Potters Association has advanced ceramics artistry, craft and programs in Medicine Hat for over 45 years, while the Hat Art Club celebrates 71 amazing years of the development of members’ own artistic skills in drawing, painting, printmaking and many other media, as well as helping the visual arts to thrive in Medicine Hat.
