The Gallery's mission is to foster interactionbetween artworks, artists and the community.
This work could not have been possible withoutthe support of our members, donors, sponsorsand granting agencies. Our partnerships withthe aforementioned provided the financial basisfor our successful programmes and projects.
Our gratitude goes out to the City of Waterloowho provides these award-winning premises forthe Gallery's cultural presentations that serveour many and various audiences.
This year the Gallery's successes are reflectedby its growth of audiences in our variousprograms. The Gallery's attendance in the lastyear has risen by 25% and school tourscontinue to fill all available slots in thatschedule. Our Sunday drop-in program, Playwith Clay, was filled to capacity most Sundaysand provided quality "together-time" for friendsand families alike. Shopping is the primarymotivation for approximately 50% of theGallery's visitors, and - since the Gift Shop isthe Gallery's chief means of financial support -this greatly adds to our viability.
The Board participated in its Strategic Planningsession in January and outlined key areas forresearch and actions. This year the Boardpassed various policies to help the Gallery applyfor a Cultural Properties Designation withHeritage Canada. The Gallery will also improvesome of the building infrastructure as part ofthis designation, which will allow the Gallery tocollect national treasures. In the area of BoardDevelopment, the Gallery requires an additionalfive Board members to carry on the Board'swork; we invite people interested to contact us.
Our Curator has brought in many outstandingexhibitions this year. From last year'sexhibitions, we have selected a number ofartworks to be added to our permanentcollection. Please refer to the acquisitions list onthe last page. Collecting art enriches ourcommunity as valued artworks become theproperty of this community, providing a sense ofownership and pride in this institution as ourown cultural interests and values are expressed.
The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery hassubmitted a project for consideration as
Canada's representative at the Venice Biennalefor a project called The Princess by ChristianBernard Singer. Christian's exhibit here wasentitled Tessellated Anamnesis - Patterns ForUnforgetting which the MacKenzine Art Galleryin Regina is including in their upcomingexhibition schedule.
We are very pleased that our MarketingManager, Kate Holt has generated an amazingamount of press and reviews of our exhibitionsin local press and national and international artmagazines. Exhibitions disappear once they areremoved from the Gallery and visual and textualdocumentation is very important to both thehistory of the Gallery and the artist. Websiteslike the CCGG's are increasingly important inthis role for both visitors and students studyingart and culture.
We want to recognize Kates great work as shewill leave us this summer.
We are very excited in our Education area to bedeveloping a creative human resourcesworkshop program for our corporate friends. Wewill launch this program in the fall - watch for it!We have begun to discuss and research ouroptions with regards to transforming theEducation Gallery into a space that providesexpanded artistic experience. This will take timeand effort, but we believe it will be aworthwhile investment that will definitivelyenhance visitors' experiences at the Gallery.
We would like to thank our staff that is alwayshere when needed. We all have a part to play inthis team and we are excited by the possibilitiesthat have been given us. We wish to recognizeJen DeBruyne, our former Retail Manager, whoput a new spark into our Gift Shop two yearsago and helped establish it as a destinationshopping attraction. We welcome Cathy Pewer,our new Retail Manager, and are excited by herideas and her rapport with artists and clientsalike.
