Medalta International Tool Show
an exhibition inspired by the tools of our trade
September 3 - November 30, 2015
Reception: September 3rd, 6pm

online exhibition + shop opens 12pm MST September 4th @

The theme of this year's Medalta International Exhibition is TOOL, an exhibition inspired by the processes and tools of our trade. This exhibition features works that were created using an artist’s favorite tool. Alongside their finished works, are the artists reflections or ode's to their favorite tool, giving viewers a glimpse into the processes and tools behind the objects creation.  

In its third year Medalta's annual themed exhibition is a visitor favorite and our largest of the year, with 100 works on display from artists across Canada and around the world. 

We’d love to invite you to the big opening reception to be held on Thursday September 3rd from 6-8pm in Medalta’s Yuill Gallery. We hope you can join us for the evening where we will be announcing our Grand Prize winner of a 1 month Medalta Residency & purchase prizes for our permanent collection. It’s going to be a great night in the gallery as we will also be opening the Greg Payce: Continuum exhibition. 

For those of you who can’t make it in person…

We will be posting shots & making prize announcements from the opening night live on Medalta’s Instagram.

The online exhibition + shop will go live Friday September 4th 12pm MST at

Thank you to all of the artists who applied and to our fabulous juror ACAD ceramics instructor, Martina Lantin! It's definitely not easy making choices from so many excellent submissions and we can’t wait to show off all of these talented artists in Medalta's gallery and online.
