New Show at Crimson Laurel: starts Saturday April 2, 2011 - April 30, 2011
Submerging the Bathysphere
Illustrative Ceramics by Eleanor Annand and Jason Bige Burnett
APRIL 2 – APRIL 30
Submerging the Bathysphere is an illustrative ceramics exhibit featuring Eleanor Annand and Jason Bige Burnett. These two artists have come together to investigate life at sea through illustrative ceramics. In both form and content they have combined their playful sensibility to create decorative and functional ceramic work.
Eleanor Annand is primarily a printmaker and illustrator. She creates prints with strong central characters that tell tales of exploration, escape, and disguise. These stories evoke folklore of the past and urban legends.
Jason Bige Burnett involves screenprinted and digital printmaking methods into his ceramics. Simultaneously he incorporates pop influenced imagery that is both personal and universal creating a sense of deviancy and play to his ceramic work.
This exhibit will open on April 2, 2011 and will be on display at Crimson Laurel Gallery and online through the end of April.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
