This exhibition features the work of visual artists, Guillaume Bégin, Leisure (Meredith Carruthers and Susannah Wesley), Margaret Griffin, Sara A.Tremblay and contemporary dancer Élise Legrand. Some of the artists were in residency at the Rozynski centre to create their works; others came to the exhibition with bodies of work that reflect on nature and clay. Each artist was tasked to reflect on the gift that Wanda Rozynska (1929-2007) and Stanley Rozynski (1931-2012) left behind in a fully functioning ceramics studio for generations of artists to come.


It was in 1964, eleven years after their marriage and a few years spent making art in New York City and Montreal, the Rozynskis bought a schoolhouse in Way’s Mills. This would become their home, studio, and summer school. Among the artworks displayed in the exhibition are vases by Wanda and sculpture by Stanley, and documents and photographs drawn from their extensive uncatalogued archive. The exhibition as a whole celebrates the natural life the Rozynskis led and the impact upon artists working today.
