Artist Talk with Kathryne Koop – March 11

Kathryne Koop is coming on Friday March 11 for an Artist Talk and some demos! This will be held in the Sculpture/Ceramics Building from 9am to 4pm. Come see and learn from this great Winnipeg artist!

Kathryne Koop began her fascination with clay at the University of Manitoba in 1976, and has made a career as a potter since 1980, after receiving her BFA Honours Degree. The next year she joined the gallery, and the Stoneware Studio and has been integrally active in both ever since. The gallery offers a permanent location where her work is always exhibited and available to the public for purchase, while the studio provides the gas kiln that she jointly owns with four other partners, in which she highkathrynekoopartwork fires her work. Working in porcelain, she creates numerous objects that are both functional and sculptural, paying close
attention to detail while pushing limits both physically and creatively. Her pieces change and evolve continuously as new ideas need to be realized.

The ememo is sent out on a weekly basis every Wednesday. All news submissions must be submitted by email to fineart@umanitoba.ca before Tuesday at 4:30pm to be considered for the following week’s ememo.
