Do you love Seth Rogen? What about pottery?
Rogen aficionados and aesthetes alike will find plenty to enjoy at the Vancouver Art Gallery as it auctions off artworks from local heroes, international stars and the Vancouver funnyman.
Hosted exclusively online by Heffel Fine Art Auction House, the Vancouver Art Gallery 2021 Art Auction | Spring Forward will continue bidding until 1 p.m. on June 15. Prospective buyers may view the pieces at the gallery on the Fourth Floor during regular hours.
Rogen's donated piece is an untitled vase with a pronounced texture and vibrant orange colour, showcasing a glaze he created himself; the dimensions are 8″ x 5″ x 5."
The auction also features outstanding artworks by 32 renowned local and international artists. The works are comprised of various paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, and media works which may all be viewed online.
Anthony Kiendl, Vancouver Art Gallery CEO and Gallery Director, noted that the gallery has been impacted by the "tremendous loss of visitors" and that "by supporting the Gallery through this auction, or even buying a membership, we are able to keep our doors open, support artists and support communities."
Seth Rogen and pottery during the pandemic
The famous cannabis connoisseur is a huge fan of handmade pottery, which he proudly showcases on his Twitter and Instagram accounts. However, he didn't pick up the artistic pastime during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
While countless people picked up new hobbies to beat lockdown boredom or keep the pandemic blues at bay, moulding clay is something the Vancouver-born actor has long enjoyed.
Take a journey through the evolution of the funnyman's pottery prowess and the unique ideas he crafted.
