Gallery I — Elevating Clay: From Wheel to Wall
National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts
MON, MAR 10 – SUN, MAR 30, 2014
Elevating Clay: From Wheel to Wall unites a breadth of nationally and regionally active ceramic artists, all of whom have ties to Dane County. The work by both well-know and up-and-coming artists is split between Galleries I, II, and III, and illustrates the wide array of firing techniques, mediums, and forms that are possible through ceramic art. Together, the artists represent the great diversity and the distinct artistic styles of both Dane County and Wisconsin. This show is presented in congruency with the 48th annual NCECA Conference, which takes place March 19th-22nd in Milwaukee, WI.
Many of the artists in Gallery I have taken bold forms and combine them seamlessly with subtle but strong coloring. Displayed are classic figures such as platters, sculptures, and tiles which have been transformed into innovative and unique works of art.
