Voyager Art & Tile

Voyager Art & Tile (Red Deer) is operated by Brian McArthur and Dawn Detarando. Both have their Masters of Fine Arts in ceramics from the Ohio State University.

Using clay made in Alberta and formulating their own glazes, they have created a wide variety of hand-carved tiles.

They also collaborate in large scale public art installations and most recently have been awarded the commission for the Southgate LRT Station by the City of Edmonton. ‘Immense Mode’, a giant pair of brick legs measuring 20 feet tall is slated for opening in the spring of 2009. In 2005 Brian and Dawn jointly received the Award for Achievement from the Alberta Craft Council and in 2008 Dawn received the Lieutenant Governor’s Emerging Artist Award.
