Opening Reception: 21 Pillows - Cheryl Wilson-Smith
Jusqu'au December 13, 2019 (7:30 PM - 9:30 PM)

Opening Reception: artist in attendance 7:30 pm

21 PILLOWS  (December 13 - March 3, 2019)  is an interactive installation featuring 21 pillows placed on the gallery floor. Cheryl invites visitors to enter the dimly lit gallery, reminiscent of dusk, and pick a glass rock – one from thousands all designed and kiln-fired by the artist – to place on the pillows. This collective shaping of the environment allows us to consider the passage of time and the vulnerability of both humanity and the natural world.

Award-winning sculptural glass artist Cheryl Wilson-Smith lives in Red Lake, Ontario, on the Canadian Shield surrounded by the boreal forest. 21 PILLOWS is her first installation. It’s a prescient reminder of how we affect the natural world over time. With every addition, every move, every alteration, what was there before is forever altered.
