SUDBURY, ON – April 24, 2014 – Artists on Elgin is proud to host the exhibit “Exploring Creativity through Clay and Canvas” by local artist Paula Walsh.  This exhibit is a combination of functional pottery and paintings. The opening reception will be held at Artists on Elgin on Saturday, May 3 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The exhibit will be on display for public viewing throughout the month of May.

This unique exhibit features functional pottery and various paintings as Paula Walsh is a multifaceted artist. While specializing in the art of pottery, Walsh has expanded her creative process and moved into different mediums.


“I strive to make each piece unique. I decided long ago that I would rather make 300 different mugs than the same mug 300 times, explains Walsh in regards to her work. Machines can replicate, people make art.”


The public is encouraged to attend the opening reception where Paula will be in attendance to speak about her work. Exploring Creativity through Clay and Canvas will be on display at Artists on Elgin throughout the month of May.


“This exhibit is great because a lot of the pieces are functional and make great gifts, said Courtney Natale, Business Promotions Coordinator for The Northern Artist Gallery/ Artists on Elgin. All pieces are handmade and one of a kind.”

 

Artists on Elgin is located at 168 Elgin Street, and is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
