Opening

  • Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery 461 Langdon Crescent Moose Jaw, SK, S6H 1C7 Canada

An exhibition that celebrates the history of clay making in Saskatchewan. Through the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery, a retrospect travelling exhibition of Hansen-Ross Pottery was created along with a companion table top book. The exhibition is named after Folmer Hansen and David Ross who were business partners. The pottery studio and shop that they shared in Fort Qu'Appelle was in operation for over 40 years. The building started out as a craft house through the Saskatchewan Arts Board but was eventually turned over to them as a working ceramic studio. Known for their Scandinavian-inspired modernist pottery and their utilitarian functional ware, made between the late 1950's and 2005, they produced tens of thousands of pieces of pottery. This retrospective exhibition pays honour to these pioneers of Saskatchewan Pottery. This exhibition showcases pottery from a number of personal and public collections and traveled to Japan and 6 other Canadian art galleries. This is the final gallery on the tour.
