Glenn Lewis: From the Leach Pottery and St. Ives 1962/2013
Trench Contemporary Art is pleased to present Glenn Lewis: From the Leach Pottery and St. Ives 1962/2013 a selection of early and recent ceramics, photography, and sculpture.
Exactly fifty years after his two year study at the prestigious Leach Pottery Studio at St. Ives in 1962, Glenn Lewis was invited back to the studio to attend the Master Potter residency. Lewis’s return to ceramics exemplifies his patient mastering of material and form. Exhibited with playful photographs and early ceramics, Lewis’ work pushes the boundaries of art, craft and the unexpected, all with perfect “flakey” flair.
Glenn Lewis is a senior Vancouver conceptual artist whose artistic career spans almost 55 years. Lewis has worked in ceramics, sculpture, video, film, performance, writing and photography. He has also taught ceramics, sculpture, drawing and art teaching methods at the University of British Columbia, and media workshops at the National Film Board in Vancouver. Lewis also served on several boards including Intermedia, the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Western Front, various Canada Council juries, and was head of the Media Arts Section of the Canada Council from 1987-1990.
