Good Earth: The Pots & Passion of Walter Ostrom

Good Earth: The Pots & Passion of Walter Ostrom

Exhibiting at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia until March 14, 2021.
1723 Hollis Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia

Walter Ostrom, Plate with Byzantine Flower and Rack


Co-curated by Dr. Sandra Alfoldy, Shannon Parker, and Dr. Julie Hollenbach

Energy. Enthusiasm. Knowledge. Honesty. Inspired. Ardor for material. These are the terms that describe Walter Ostrom and his relationship with clay. They can also be summed up in one word: Passion.

Passion is a simple word and yet the immense complexity of it as a concept is at the core of Ostrom and from it flows the worldwide mosaic of his relationships, his incredible devotion as an educator, his drive for knowledge, and his love for creativity in all aspects of his life, but particularly for pottery.

Walter Ostrom is one of Canada’s foremost ceramic artists. He revolutionized clay from ethical brown earthenware to colourful, bright maiolica and inspired generations of ceramists who follow him to this day. This exhibition investigates Ostrom’s earliest work in stoneware and porcelain, his conceptual projects at NSCAD University, the many ways his love of gardening—and particularly rhododendrons—influenced his work, the huge impact China and its ceramic traditions and ceramists had on his life and practice, and his lifetime commitment to the exploration and reinvigoration of the ancient ceramic tradition of tin-glaze.

Good Earth examines Ostrom’s practice of altering form, surface treatments, and the rich elements of social commentary, geographic references, art history, and political statements he imbues in his work. An inspired instructor for over 40 years, Ostrom’s influence on a selection of his many celebrated students is also reflected in this exhibition.

Ostrom is celebrated internationally with galleries dedicated to the collection and presentation of his work in Canada, the United States, Europe and China. This bilingual touring exhibition is the first major retrospective to chronicle Ostrom’s career and impact on the field of global ceramics.

Landscape Artist of the Year Canada ~ Sundays on Makeful TV

Picture Perfect: Makeful TV Launches Landscape Artist of the Year Canada, A New Competition Series Hosted by Sook-Yin Lee

With 18 Professional and Amateur Artists, 50 Wildcard Walk Ons, Four Stunning Locations, and One Winner Set to Be Crowned Canada’s Landscape Artist of the Year, Watching Paint Dry Has Never Been More Exciting

Following Sky Arts UK’s best-performing, non-scripted series of all time, Landscape Artist of the Year, the highly-anticipated Canadian adaptation, brings together 18 of the country’s best professional and amateur artists alongside 50 wildcard hopefuls to compete for a chance to be crowned Landscape Artist of the Year Canada . Hosted by Sook-Yin Lee, the all new original series sees the artists have just four hours to create a landscape masterpiece. The winning artist will not only be crowned Landscape Artist of the Year Canada, but will also walk away with a $10,000 cash prize and will have their artwork on display at the prestigious McMichael Canadian Art Collection – home to some of Canada’s most iconic landscape art.

Landscape Artist of the Year Canada airs Sundays at 9 pm ET/PT exclusively on Makeful during the channel’s eight-week free preview event running to April 5 across Canada.

Each episode of Landscape Artist of the Year Canada travels to breathtaking and truly Canadian backdrops, from Muskoka’s picturesque Lake Rousseau to a rural country farm in Barrie. Two winners from each location will go on to compete in the final. However, these artists aren’t the only ones trying to impress the judges. The competition also sees 50 more artists descend onto each location to try their luck as wildcards, and if any catch the judges’ eye, they too have a chance to compete in the final.

Alongside the host Sook-Yin Lee, the four-part series sees expert judges Marc Mayer, former Director of the National Gallery of Canada, and award-winning artist and educator, Joanne Tod, determine the winners of each location until only one artist remains.

Using their own material and style, the artists have just four hours to create their own rendition of the landscape before them. From oil paint to acrylic, collage work to mixed media, the artwork is as diverse as the artists themselves.

Landscape Artist of the Year Canada is produced by marblemedia in association with Blue Ant Media and CBC. Based on the UK format, it is distributed by Banijay Rights, and was originally produced by Storyvault Films. Following the world premiere on Makeful this February, CBC will also air the series later this year.
