JUNE 18 TO AUGUST 30 The possibilities of clay as a visual medium go far beyond bowls, plates and figurines. Ceramicists today use their material to craft strikingly unique pieces that tell stories and address contemporary issues. Five such Canadian practitioners—who’ve been working professionally for seven years or less—are acknowledged in the RBC Emerging Artist People’s Choice Award exhibition at the Gardiner Museum. Examine, for example, David R. Harper’s natural history–influenced objects, or Veronika Horlik’s sculptural installation, which references deforested and burned woodlands, and then vote to help determine the artist most deserving of this year’s $10,000 prize. Voting ends on August 3, with the winner announced August 14.  —Craig Moy
