On March 1st we welcome two phenomenal artists to The Craig, the first, Terri Whetstone, originally from Alberta, has staked a claim for herself in Nova Scotia’s Art Community since 1993. 

“I make paintings and collage artworks that amplify a vocabulary of forms and images that are
​ ​threaded through all my work. These are derived from my on-going research into the migration ​ ​of imagery and designs from the East to the West, and collide with my interest in a hybridity of​ ​ideas from botany, post-apocalyptic film and literature, and music.
 
In our Gallery Extension this month we welcome ceramics by Kaashif Ghanie and his works, Ripple, inspired by the creation of ceramic work to be used as a canvas, a vessel for additional communicative expression. Originally from Ontario, Kaas explores familial ties and cultural and religious elements of upbringing throughout his work.
​”​The pottery wheel thrown platters that Ghanie will create will reconceive colour expectations associate to certain vegetation. A platters physical purpose is to serve and frame food [vegetation] but as a decorative purpose they are great for potters to use as a large canvas. Ghanie uses the platter as a canvas to create his compositions and has found a strong connection in the ceramic history of serving dishes.“​
