Event Description

Internationally-recognized local artist to get her first solo exhibition at a Victoria public gallery

Samantha Dickie: A Moment in Time
Exhibition: 10 September - 31 October 2021
Public Reception: Friday 10 September, 7-10PM [artist in attendance]

The Victoria Arts Council is excited to announce the solo exhibition by Samantha Dickie.

"This dynamic installation will see our main gallery transformed into an immersive environment that pushes audiences to question the limits of ceramics." - Kegan McFadden, VAC Executive Director and curator of the exhibition.

Incorporating brand new and recent sculptural approaches to ceramics, Dickie's work confronts the viewers comprehension of the handmade through mass production while asking us to consider simple yet profound dualities within the relationship of form to space: emptiness to fullness; constraint to freedom; containment to spaciousness; and subtlety to disparity.

Using thousands of ceramic components, Dickie will install four unique works never before exhibited in Victoria. This includes a site-specific response to the VAC "Vault" project room that will mimic a stratospheric excavation.

Samantha Dickie is a Vancouver Island based ceramic artist, focused on creating both minimalist abstract sculpture, and multi-component works for architectural-scale installation and public exhibition. Following a Bachelor of Arts degree from Trent University, she completed a Diploma in Ceramics from the Kootenay School of the Arts. Over the past 18 years, her practice includes attending various residencies in Canada and abroad; receiving national and provincial grants to create large-scale conceptual projects for exhibition in public galleries across Canada, as well as teaching workshops and presenting at provincial conferences. Her work can be found in permanent collections in Victoria BC, Nanaimo BC, Burlington ONT, and Boston MA.

The Victoria Arts Council has connected artists with audiences since 1968. We thank our community sponsor of this exhibit: Madrona Gallery, as well as the BC Arts Council, CRD Arts & Culture, the Province of British Columbia, and our dedicated membership.
