Ceramic Centric

Ceramic Centric

This Deadline Expired: Monday, February 18, 2019

It must be a human instinct to create with mud. Ancient civilizations around the globe seemed to reach the same conclusion about this resource at various times in history. If you take earth, wet it, shape it, and fire it, something useful, beautiful, and elemental is formed. From this invention, mud bricks, drinking vessels, and sculptures were created. With “Ceramic Centric”, we seek to celebrate how current artists translate this ancient medium. The artwork in this exhibition will be comprised primarily of clay. As creating with this medium is not limited to the three dimensional, half of the show will display wall hanging ceramic works.

Artists are invited to submit up to three pieces of ceramic work. Entries must be submitted by February 18, 2018. “Ceramic Centric” will open with a reception on Friday, April 12, 2019, from 5:30-8 pm in the main gallery. The exhibition will be on display from April 12, 2019 – May 24, 2019. Three prizes will be awarded at the Opening Reception: two Juror’s Choice Awards of $200, and a Going Solo Award that offers the recipient a solo exhibition in one of our galleries.

Ceramic artist and gallery owner Ruth Reese will serve as juror for this exhibition. For more information about Reese and the exhibition, visit www.foundryartcentre.org/ceramic-centric.

Ellen Rosenholtz’s graphite on paper series explores native flora and fauna of New Jersey. The work looks at the profound beauty of natural forms as it exists within animals and plants. The multiplicity of images underscore the interconnection of living systems, while geometric patterning enable the viewer to identify each of the species through repetition of form.

Wendy is a Self-taught Collage Artist. The main focus of her Mixed Media Collage Work is to intermingle the old with the new. I push boundaries to create & discover different processes in which to incorporate images of older, more worn items with newer ones into my work, all for the purpose of creating one fluid, mystical image of beauty.
