Back to the Land: Ceramics from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands 1970-1985 presents the work of 31 ceramic artists working on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands in the 1970s and 1980s. Guest curated by Diane Carr, the exhibition emphasizes the “back to the land” movement of the early 1970s as the impetus for the explosion of ceramic activity in this region.
Mary was the guest artist at the Filberg Festival, held in Comox on Vancouver Island in August.
Loved being the Guest Artist at the Filberg Festival, this was the 30th year for the Festival and I can see why it’s such a popular event. Four days in a wonderful park surrounded by really great Artisans with live music to enjoy as well… what could be better. Oh, I know what made it better…. great food as well, gotta love that! I met lots of new people that now have Mary Fox works in their homes, 2 of my sculptures have new digs and was reacquainted with some long time collectors that I haven’t seen in many years. A good time for sure.
