Artist Talk by Michael Flaherty

Saturday, June 23
7:00 PM
Sunbury Shores Arts & Nature Centre

Michael Flaherty was born in Newfoundland and subsequently spent much of his childhood getting lost in the woods. As an adult he has lived alone for three months on a deserted island, crisscrossed Canada and the United States by bicycle, and inhabited abandoned communities in his home province, all as part of his artistic practice.

Flaherty studied ceramics at NSCAD University (BFA) and University of Regina (MFA) and has taught at numerous institutions across the country. His work was recognized nationally when he was a semi-finalist for the Sobey Art Award (2011) and a finalist for the RBC People’s Choice Award (2013). He won the Large Year Award from Visual Artists Newfoundland and Labrador in 2013.

Flaherty resides in Port Union, Newfoundland, where he has established Wild Cove Pottery. His studio activities are varied, including pottery, sculpture, installation, and performance.

As part of our Critically Acclaimed Artists Program, Michael is teaching “Mud, Sun and Forest”. A ceramic course experimenting with digging natural clay, foraging natural objects, and using a solar powered kiln.
