EXHIBIT – Clay+/Invitational
December 12 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until December 21, 2022
The Sarah Moody Gallery of Art is proud to present Clay+/Invitational, October 27 through December 21, 2022. There will be an artists’ reception on Friday, November 4, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Clay+/Invitational is an exhibit of works by ten ceramicists who use materials and methods that de-emphasize traditional clay-centric practices and use a more interdisciplinary approach, challenging viewers to reconsider the traditional “purist” idea of ceramics. The exhibiting artists are Audrey An, Heather Nameth Bren, Andrew Castañeda, Ling Chun, Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Jason Hackett, Salvador Jiménez-Flores, Julie Malen, Kourtney Stone, and Kyle Triplett.
MacDonald said that the field of ceramics “must embrace a multitude of approaches to making, along with new conceptual frameworks. Using materials other than clay to enhance and elevate the ceramic object is one such approach – it is just an alternative way to consider the histories, processes and meaning of the material.”
