Join us at 6 pm on Tuesday, August 1st for an artist talk by Evelyn Roitner!
Evelyn’s Gallery show, “Place-Setting” welcomes you to the table no matter the distance. Through handmade functional ceramics arranged in a table setting, we see a story of friends gathering and how themes of human connection and distance are explored in everyday tableware.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Evelyn Roitner is a St. John’s-based multidisciplinary artist with a Bachelor of Design in Illustration from OCAD University. Through painting, mixed media and ceramics, she explores themes of identity, storytelling, place and personal mythologies. In her approach to clay, she is most interested in combining illustration and sequential art with functional ceramics.
ABOUT THE VENUE
The Craft Council Gallery is located on the 2nd floor of 155 Water street in Downtown St John’s, NL.
From the Water Street entrance: There is a set of glass doors (width of 48 inches). They lead into the main hallway of the building, where you will find the black double gate (width of 58 inches) leading to the Shop & Pantry on your immediate right, and a door leading to the Gallery ahead of you on the far right. Through the doors, you will find stairs and an elevator (the door is 31 inches wide) that will lead you to the second floor where the gallery is located. No entrances leading to the gallery have buttons to press to automatically open the doors and all require someone to physically (manually) open them at this time.
The washroom is just to the left of the elevator on the second floor the doorways to the washroom are 36 inches wide and have a push button. The washroom is approximately 6 feet by 5 feet.
The staff in both The Shop & Pantry and The Gallery are pleased to help you if you need assistance.
The Gallery has developed the Whisperer program for visually impaired and blind persons, please let us know if you would like us to accompany you and give you the full experience of the space; we will gladly give you a private tour of the exhibitions!
For patrons on the Autism Spectrum, we are happy to book a “quiet time” before our gallery opens to the public so you can fully enjoy the experience. Please contact us and let us know your needs and we will do our best to accommodate them.
