The Feature Artist show for August is a collection of pottery, designed and formed by Al Scott. Multiple courses with accomplished potters led Al, after retirement, to become a full time potter and teacher in his studio in Vernon.
Through his company, Breakaway Pottery, Al has participated in multiple exhibits, sometimes with his students, and his work is displayed at the Vernon Art Gallery, and Gallery Odin at Silver Star Mountain Ski Resort as well as private collections in Canada, the United States and abroad.
His show highlights the functional bowl, and also exhibits other pottery pieces that exhibit the different stages involved in transforming a lump of clay into a functional or artistic ceramic piece.
Visit his website for an extensive photographic journey of his skill as a potter, and his dedication to studying and sharing his knowledge through classes with his students at Breakaway Pottery
MEET THE ARTIST – Al will be in the Gallery every Friday in August, from 10am to 12 noon. He will answer all your questions and discuss the many techniques that are employed in the pottery process. Learn more about the diverse functionality of the ‘bowl’. You can also meet him at the Gallery on August 20th, during opening hours, 10am to 4pm, when he will be hosting.
In 2012 a group of local artists came together with the vision of forming an art gallery in Enderby. With some fundraising and a start-up grant of $3000 from the Enderby and District Arts Council the newly formed Enderby Artists’ Initiative opened the doors of the Courtyard Gallery in April of 2013. In 2020 the Courtyard Gallery ceased to operate under the Enderby Artists’ Initiative as a result of a merger with the Enderby and District Arts Council (EDAC) and now operates as a permanent standing committee of EDAC.
This nonprofit, co-operative gallery aims to showcase the work of local artists and reach out to the community with workshops and exhibitions, as well as participate in local arts festivals.
February 1, 2020 marked the official merger of the Enderby and District Arts Council with the Enderby Artists Initiative (Courtyard Gallery).
The revitalized Enderby and District Arts Council and Courtyard Gallery continue to bring to the people of Enderby and District the art experiences that they have come to expect.
EDAC has moved it’s office to Courtyard Gallery.
