October 6 – December 16, 2016

Reception: October 6 from 5-7pm
Symposium: October 6-7
Symposium Rebroadcast: April 28th, 2017

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.

The live symposium rebroadcast is scheduled for Friday, April 28, 2017. Live feed and further information here.
