In Artist Talks, Events

Join us for our Winter Artist Talk

Emma Smith
Thursday, March 2 – 10:30 a.m.

Emma is a ceramic artist and creative thinker. Growing up in the shadow of the Niagara escarpment, she aims to celebrate the significance of place, environment and land through her life philosophy and artistic practice. Exploring this theme largely through woodfired ceramics, her work is made to be experienced quietly, encouraging moments of contemplation and reflection. Outside of the clay studio, she enjoys storytelling through writing and film photography. Emma is also an active member of Hamilton Aerial Group, a grass roots aerial and stilt theatre company that produces narratives using puppetry, clowning and circus arts. You can find her, her work, and her small homestead, in the rural hamlet of Jerseyville ON. Learn more about Emma’s practice, work and sources of inspiration in this much anticipated artist talk.

Registration for Emma Smith’s Artist Talk will be shared here, when available.


Learning from other artists is one of the seminal elements in an artist’s training. These free 1-hour talks presented by Dundas Valley School of Art are an excellent opportunity to hear from artists themselves as they share information on their careers, inspiration, techniques and the work they produce.
