Contemporary Clay: A Survey of Contemporary American Ceramics Symposium Rebroadcast
The Contemporary Clay Symposium was held at Western Carolina University in October, 2016. The live symposium rebroadcast is scheduled for Friday, April 28th. Watch online or at any of a number of host sites around the US, including Western Carolina University and UNC Asheville.
Curated by Heather Mae Erickson, Contemporary Clay, examines the evolving, expanded field of clay and ceramics. Exciting shifts throughout the field push this limitless material through new processes and concepts. This exhibition aims to show the depth and breadth of this material and its user’s ideas, ranging from, but not limited to, traditional and non-traditional functional objects, rapid prototyping, use of mixed materials in objects and installations, and unfired clay as a final material. This exhibition encourages viewers to consider the concepts, processes, and contexts of clay in contemporary art. Each artist, from emerging to established, was selected due to his or her noteworthy contribution to the field of contemporary clay and ceramics.
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!
