Touchstones Nelson is collaborating with the Kootenay School of the Arts (KSA) at Selkirk College for the fifth annual exhibition of KSA graduate student work.
The works presented will be diverse not only in their materials, but also in their artistic intent. Conceptual works, from jewelry conveying political issues in Africa to fibre work referencing the origin and manufacture of its materials, will be shown alongside whimsical teapots and screen-printed clay wall pieces.
This year’s graduate work shows a high level of imagination, skill and variety, which is a testament to the students extensive hands-on studio work, combined with a rigorous study of design, drawing, craft history and professional practices.
KSA is a school of craft and design taught by a faculty of working artists and craftspeople. The school offers two-year Diploma programs in Clay, Fibre or Jewellery & Small Object Design studio arts and a one-year Certificate in Metal studio arts.
