ShopWAG Presents Bud Gillies: Vessels + Frescoes
Friday, March 23 to Sunday, April 22
Opening Reception: Mar 23, 6-9pm at Gallery Shop
Bud Gillies: Vessels + Frescoes features paintings and ceramic works created by Gillies throughout the last year. His paintings are a celebration of colour enhanced by their simplicity and clarity of form; his compositions are fresh, inventive, and highlight the element of chance. Alongside this collection is a series of large Art Deco-inspired ceramic vessels with intriguing visual texture.
Gillies' work is in the Winnipeg Art Gallery's permanent collection, and has been featured in WAG exhibitions, including Clay at the Crossroads: Directions in Contemporary Studio Ceramics and In Praise of Crafts/Louange aux Metiers d'Art. His work is also part of the collections of the Manitoba Government, Charles Bronfman Claridge collection in Montreal, and coveted by private and corporate collectors in Canada and the USA.
All works on view are available for purchase.
