This juried exhibition celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the Mississauga Potters’ Guild and honours their longevity and growing connection to the cultural community in Mississauga. Sanguine is a synonym for the ruby, the traditional gemstone to celebrate this milestone. Sanguine not only refers to red iron oxide, a chemical used in clay and glazes, but is also means optimistic, buoyant and spirited, which reflects the Mississauga Potters' Guild’s positive growth and enthusiastic vision for the future. Ceramic artists explore materials, processes and techniques to visually express their personal narrative, observations and experiences within this thematic framework.

A Mentorship Programme was offered to Guild members as an opportunity for participants to explore concepts, techniques and form. These personal creative journeys were guided by the Mentor and the participating peers.
This first Mississauga Potters’ Guild Mentorship commenced in November 2015 with Angelo di Petta, Professor Emeritus of OCAD University, as the Mentor.
Each of the 10 participants came to the programme with a different level of experience and education in clay. Under the guidance of the Mentor each one concentrated on and worked towards their personal goals and narratives.
The participants who embarked on this challenging journey are:
Ann Allen, Lowell Barron, Jacquie Blondin, Sharon Boon, Gay Longo, Frieda Pereira, Vera Polischuk, Andrea Poorter, Vicki Ruple Lepe and Jenny Rushforth.
The collection of works from the Mentorship was juried by Mentor Angelo di Petta was shared with the public during the culminating exhibition titled Uncharted,from August 2 to 26, 2017.
