Medalta Alumni

It’s always a sad ‘see-you-later’ when an artist leaves Medalta at the end of their residency. If we had space, we’d ask them to stay forever.

As much as Medalta’s Shaw Centre is a workspace for ceramic artists, it’s also very community-oriented. Most of the artists working at Medalta get plugged into Medicine Hat and form a big part of our artistic landscape.

Artists in Residence Alumni

Because we never like saying ‘so long’, we like to keep a little space for our artists, even if it is only online. Have a look at the names below to see some of the artists who have spent time at Medalta.
