Bibi Clement: Vigil of Angels

June 15, 2009 - September 12, 2009

The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is pleased to present an exhibition of ceramic art work by local potter Bibi Clement.  This exhibition is the culmination of many years of work by the prominent Peace Country ceramicist.

Each “Angel” sculpture in this exhibit has an extraordinary significance. Not angels in a purely Biblical sense, they represent the kind and wonderful incidents that have transpired throughout Bibi’s life, and the people who have touched it with grace. To her, the layers and nuances of the ash and salt in the wood fired glazes are symbolic of her past and present experiences.

As the visitor journeys through the installation they will pass from the “Dark Angels” (signifying the bleak and challenging moments inevitable in life) to the centre where hope and joy are embodied by the colourful “Light Angels”.
