Ceramic Artist in Residence

The Port Moody Arts Centre’s Ceramic Artist in Residence (CAIR) program is an important part of our commitment to artistic and cultural development. The annual residency supports the work of an emerging ceramic artist, providing opportunities for artistic development within an innovative and supportive ceramics community. The resident receives a secure ceramic studio space for one year, gallery space for a solo exhibition, and mentorship. In return, they contribute to the PoMoArts community by instructing classes, assisting in the operation of our Open Clay Studio, and engaging with the public.

Applications for the 2023/2024 Ceramic Artist in Residence program are closed. Please check back in Spring 2024.

She also enjoys incorporating her illustration and painting skills into her ceramic work.She studied animation at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, but fell in love with pottery after earning her degree. She has been an art instructor since 2017.Georgia loves sharing her passion and knowledge, believing that in art there is no failure, only learning. She delights in helping students create work that makes them proud.

"I want to make objects that are useful and beautiful. My goal is to make something that the user will feel joy when they hold it, use it or look at it. I once read that viewing a piece of artwork that you love is the same feeling as falling in love, that is the reaction I'd like people to have about my work."
