During the 2024 Exposure Photography Festival - February 4 to 25
The exhibition Yixing Teapots, by Calgary photographer Ray van Nes, stemmed from a small-scale still life project involving a baker's dozen of Chinese terracotta tea pots, a Shu Dynasty inspired teacup, as well as a Moose Jaw teapot called Love Monster.
Depictions of everyday items are wonderful windows into the past and present. Using a platinum / palladium print process, the photographer has imbued these material objects with life, glorifying their form, meaning, and charm. The images recognize the value of mindful contemplation while going about the simple rhythms of familiar tasks.
Open: Wed - Mon: 11:00 - 16:00. Closed Tuesdays.
