Phil Mercier | Accumulations: Sea Glass

April 26 – June 42021

Receiver Coffee Co.
128 Richmond Street
Charlottetown, PE

this town is small and Receiver Coffee are pleased to present Accumulations: Sea Glass, a solo exhibition of photographs by Phil Mercier.

Sea glass is known by many names: mermaid’s tears, beach glass, jewels of the sea, and sea gems. It is formed from bottles and other glass objects that have been weathered by the ocean. It takes between 20 and 50 years under the weight of the waves and the interaction between the sand, rocks, and salt for a piece to form. Perhaps it is this lengthy process, spanning decades, of broken shards rotating through the waters to then emerge beautiful and smooth that has led to such romanticized names. The series presented in this exhibition is a photographic investigation of these objects.

Phil Mercier is a visual artist living in Brookfield, Prince Edward Island. He can often be found tending to his plants or developing film in his bathroom.
