Q+A with Jan & Helga Grove

We are honoured to present a retrospective of pottery and clay sculpture by Victoria artists Jan and Helga Grove. This extensive exhibition is comprised of approximately one hundred pieces of pottery and sculpture made between 1953 and 2005.

Our Studio Coordinator, Oona McClure, brings a deep love and respect for creative exploration and artistic communication to her work as an artist, educator and art therapist.
