SUNDAY, MAY 5, 2013, 12 PM - 5 PM
Montréal, April 30, 2013 – On Sunday, May 5, 2013, from 12 pm to 5 pm, Espace VERRE will open its doors to showcase two glass designers hard at work. Julien Mongeau of a + j will blow glass in the hotshop, while Cédric Ginart will create pieces in the flameworking studio.
Resulting from a playful exchange, objects created by Amélie Lucier + Julien Mongeau are both utilitarian and decorative. With a + j pieces, fun yet sleek design meets high functionality. Slender and tripod oil drizzlers, juicers, mortar + pestles, and maple syrup jars are amongst their most coveted pieces. All and all, a happy union of glass and ceramic!
Trained as a scientific glassblower, Cédric Ginart not only works with scientists, but artists, industrialists, architects and designers alike. Experimental projects, prototyping, limited-run series, installations – the sky is the limit! Discover his timeless designs of classic objects, from port sippers to essential oils diffuser.
Espace VERRE is a centre dedicated to the creation and promotion of glass arts in Québec. Housed in a reconverted fire station, Espace VERRE is located at 1200 Mill Street in Montréal.

Galerie Elena Lee - ANNIE CANTIN anamorphose stellaire - April 16 - May 8
posted: April 12, 2013
Opening - Tuesday April 16, 5 to 7 pm
Annie Cantin creates her very own artistic language by marrying glass with a variety of materials. She uses the trans-lucidity of her sculptures in combination with smartly placed mirrors to manipulate the light in a way that transforms them. Cantin takes us into her playful world of fantasy with an infinite variety of shapes in colors that are both subtle and bright at the same time.
In this show, movement is a principal creative factor. A forest of humorous works that are part bulbuls, part planets gently swing from the ceiling. They are suspended with discreet springs and sometimes pert into motion by a small mechanism.
Cantin intends to make the spectator smile and participate in a fleeting moment of wonder. Precious and fragile, glass allows the artist to allude to the transient character of all life, while at the same time celebrating its exuberance by this dance of luminous color.
Annie Cantin participated in numerous national and international shows. Her work is part of notable collections: Loto-Quebec, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, The Department of Foreign Affairs and the Musée de verre de Sars-Poteries in France.
Robyn Weatherley Beyond Measure MFA Thesis Exhibition - April 17th - 20th
posted: April 12, 2013
MFA Thesis Exhibition
April 17th - 20th, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday, April 19th 6pm - 8pm
Gallery Hours: Wednesday through Saturday 11am – 6pm
Tyler School of Art
2001 North 13th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122
In Beyond Measure, Robyn Weatherley presents an exploration of the intangible and elusive traces remaining from bodily and psychological interactions between individuals and the spaces they inhabit.
Strongly influenced by the phenomenology of perception, memory and rationality, Weatherley’s work reflects the physical and emotional fragments that we shed continuously as we travel through everyday existence. Our interactions with the world are deeply affected by spatial memories whether we are conscious or not of the unseen layers of residue and personal histories imprinted upon place.
Working in glass, video, and mixed media, Weatherley’s works manifest relics of intangible remnants, making visible subtle dialogues between body and environment.
Weatherley is currently an MFA candidate Temple University’s Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA. She earned her BFA with honors from the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD), 2010 and has also studied at Temple University’s Rome Campus. She has exhibited in Philadelphia, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, and Ottawa

This spring some of Canadaʼs top emerging craft and design students will be showcasing the results of their final year of work in Sheridanʼs Craft and Design program. This Could Work, hosted by the Ontario Crafts Council, highlights the results of many months of experimentation, practice and examination.
The students, active in four studios including Glass, Textiles, Ceramics and Furniture, will be presenting a broad body of work encompassing functional, sculptural, decorative, and conceptual pieces. These well considered objects often hide the many months of toil and uncertainty that have gone into their production. This Could Work represents many new makers, their hopeful spirit of experimentation, and, a fresh perspective.
Recognized as one of Canadaʼs finest Craft and Design programs, Sheridanʼs Craft and Design program produces graduates who have received national and international accolades for their work. The three-year intensive program provides Sheridan students with a strong foundation in craft-based skills and intimate knowledge of materials and technical processes that set them apart from other design students. This Could Work reflects a deep commitment to process, and offers a brief window into the studentʼs exciting future careers.
