Regina Clay: Worlds in the Making

Curated by Timothy Long of the MacKenzie Art Gallery in Regina, Saskatchewan, this exhibition, which will tour nationally through Canada, focuses on ceramic work being done in Regina between 1965 and 1975. From 1964 to 1969, Levine initially studied pottery and sculpture with Beth Hone, Ricardo Gomez and Jack Sures in Regina and later taught ceramics there. Leaving in the spring of 1969 for the University of California at Berkeley to obtain a graduate degree in sculpture, she then returned to Canada in 1971 to teach ceramics for the next two years but for a spring 1972 hiatus at the University of California, Davis where she was a Visiting Lecturer in ceramics and sabbatical replacement for Bob Arneson.

Among Levine’s works to be in the show are an early non-objective sculpture made in 1969, several 1970 transitional pop/funk pieces including Soft Empties and Sailor’s Cap and representing her signature realist sculptures, Bob’s Cowboy Boots and Dufour Backpack, both made in 1973 and pictured at left.

The exhibition debuts at the Museum London in Ontario on March 5, 2005 and will be on view through May 29th; it then travels to the Burlington Art Centre in Ontario in August, to the MacKenzie Art Gallery and to the Kelowna Art Gallery in British Columbia. An illustrated catalogue will accompany the show. For more information, please contact the MacKenzie Art Gallery, telephone 306.584.4250 or fax 306.569.8191.
