Since 1970, Peter Powning has lived and worked as an artist in the hills of southern New Brunswick. His life is characterized by intense periods of work preparing for exhibitions and commissions, punctuated by periodic travel. While Powning’s award-winning work is shown internationally, it is imbued with qualities distilled from a life lived close to the silence, space and seasonal rhythms of his home, the fields, forests and shorelines of Canada’s East Coast. www.sandraainsleygallery.com

East Coast Ceramics
The ceramists of the Maritimes form a cohesive style of work, unlike any other region of the country. Long out of the artistic mainstream, in the last quarter of a century a group of dedicated artists have forged a unique style that combines a high degree of functionability with the strong folk art tradition of the area. Narrative themes involving local floral and fauna, bold colour and stylized patternig are all hallmarks of these artists.
