Renata Podlog:  Pottery is a lifelong passion for Renata. Having spent more than three decades teaching, exploring and experimenting, Renata has developed an ever-expanding repertoire of styles and designs. Each unique and personalized creation has key elements that she has become known for, like her signature twisted handles and extremely detailed decorative features.  Renata has also worked for more than 30 years doing restoration work from excavation sites in the Middle East, piecing together ancient pottery artifacts dating back 2,000 to 8,000 years.

Meish Podlog:  As a long-time worker of wood, Meish shifted from cabinetry to lathe work - - working in both vertical and horizontal dimensions.  Primarily using domestic woods gathered from backyards and the bush in southern Ontario Meish tries to maximize the visual impact of the grain, colour and structure unique to each piece of wood much like a sculptor searching for the hidden form in each stone.  For more than 3 decades, Meish also served as lead negotiator for both Indigenous peoples and the Government of Ontario in seeking the resolution of land claims.

Kathryn Bemrose | A Manner of Speaking

"A completed composition always leaves a question. And so I go to the next painting in answering the last one however it inevitably comes up with a new question. Before you know it, there is a body of work asking and answering ad infinitum. The last painting always leaves an unanswered question."
Kathryn Bemrose, Toronto 2017
