Lucent: Works in Light and Shadow

Aug 16th, 2014 - Oct 26th, 2014

Artist Trudy Golley constructs ceramic forms that capture, obstruct, transmit, and redirect light in order to exploit its many qualities.  Working with new materials and technical processes, her recent works produce lustrous surfaces and create light and shadow that extend beyond the pieces. Viewers will experience a sense of discovery while exploring the notions of conceptual and intellectual illumination.

Trudy Golley received her education in Ceramics at the Alberta College of Art and the University of Calgary (BFA) and the University of Tasmania (MFA) in Hobart, Australia. She has been invited to participate in ceramic residencies, lecture, and give workshops in Canada, the US, Australia, Denmark, China, Scotland, Hong Kong and Malta.

Inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 2002, she is the recipient of grants from the Canada Council, Manitoba Arts Council and Alberta Foundation for the Arts. Her work is represented in numerous public and private collections in Canada, China, Denmark and Australia. Trudy has taught Ceramics in the Visual Art Department at Red Deer College since 2000.
