Distant Visions

Distant Visions

5 February to 1 March 2020

2020 marks the 45th Anniversary of the Canberra Potters’ Society. Since 1975, Canberra Potters has acquired a number of works from visiting artists, workshop tutors and artists-in-residence from around the world.

Distant Visions signifies the launch of Canberra Potters’ 2020 exhibition program, and is a small symbol of the impact that countless visiting artists have had on the Society. Including work by more than 35 artists, this exhibition tells the story of the ever-evolving nature of ceramics. The diverse array of works on display extend from traditional tableware to contemporary sculptures, some of which have never been publicly displayed before.

Canberra Potters is proud to present this exhibition which features high-quality work from emerging and established artists alike. Using the enduring medium of clay through contemporary interpretations, Distant Visions generates renewed conversations around technical and conceptual approaches to ceramics over the last 30+ years.
