Make Some Mugs (or Bowls!)
Everyone loves to enjoy their beverages in handmade mugs (and snacks in handmade bowls!) In this class, students will join Molly Davidson for two Saturdays to make a set of mugs or bowls on the wheel, learn creative handbuilding techniques, and create unique handles for their mugs. Make them tall or wide, ornate or simple. Step into the rhythm of making your own ceramics and see your ideas come to life; the sky is the limit. Class limited to four participants for plenty of personal instruction and time on the wheel.

Saturdays, June 1 and June 8, 2019 • 10am-2:30 pm (30 mins break for lunch) • Cost: $165.00 (all supplies, glazes and firing included).

The Saint John Arts Centre is thrilled to host ‘Harbour’ an exhibition curated by Amy Ash. The exhibition will be one of three to open Friday, May 3rd, from 5:30-7:30 pm at the Saint John Arts Centre. Hope to see you there!

Artists: Alisa Arsenault, Sara Griffin, Emma Hassencahl-Perley, Nienke Izurieta, Sarah Jones, Chantal Khoury, Ann Manuel, Sarah Power, Dan Xu; curated by Amy Ash

A harbour is a place on the coast where ships may moor in shelter, protected from rough water by piers, jetties, and other artificial structures. The entry or exit point of solid land, it is the beginning and end of a migration. The act of harbouring refers to keeping something guarded, safe, often in secret; it can be one of loyalty, either empowering or debilitating.

A blend of archival imagery (from New Brunswick Museum) and contemporary art that spirals out from the geographic term which at once defines the Maritimes and a poetic act of safekeeping, this exhibition will compose a polyphony of local lore. Together, these works speak to the human experience of inhabiting a coastal area and being inhabited by things we cannot let go; they build a collective voice through the etymology of the commonly used maritime descriptor for our
locale: Harbour.

HARBOUR features the work of nine contemporary artists with strong ties to New Brunswick, and includes a mix of painting, sculpture installation and print. Together, Alisa Arsenault (Moncton), Sara Griffin (Grand Manan), Emma Hassencahl-Perley (Tobique First Nation), Nienke Izurieta (Saint John), Sarah Jones (Saint John), Chantal Khoury (Montreal), Ann Manual (Fredericton), Sarah Power (Saint John) and Dan Xu (Saint John) look to the metaphors which resonate within the geographical term used to describe our coastal home.

SJAC is thrilled to host our first curatorial residency, generously funded by the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation..
