Artists were chosen for this exhibition based on their expansive use of clay as a material for building. The constructing of objects illustrates clay’s ability to push past known associations of function while at the same time house a limitless potential for story telling. The use of narrative in creating a work of art helps the viewer connect to the maker in revisiting questions surrounding the continuum of the creative process. Formal considerations, the surprise and ‘playful’ inventive ness of materiality, as well as the use of metaphor, are the guiding factors for the exhibition’s content.
Colorado Exhibiting Artists: K Rhynus, Del Harrow, Sanam Emami, Alleghany Meadows, Jill Oberman, Doug Casebeer, Martha Russo, Sam Harvey, and JJ Peet, Brooklyn, NY.
