Current Exhibit: Flora & Fauna

Works from Glenhyrst’s Permanent Collection

in collaboration with Brantford Potters’ Guild


August 1st – September 27th, 2020

Glenhyrst Art Gallery is pleased to announce our annual permanent collection exhibition in collaboration with Brantford Potters’ Guild. Glenhyrst’s Curator & Head of Collections Matthew Ryan Smith and Permanent Collection Chair David Leng pair works from the Gallery’s collection of more than 600 artworks with selected pottery by Guild members. Based on the theme of flora and fauna, the exhibition creates a meaningful conversation between the Glenhyrst’s historical collection and new pottery. The Brantford Potters’ Guild was formed in 1975 and incorporated as a not for profit organization in 1978. Membership has grown from the initial 15 to the current membership level of over 90.
