Description

Beth Lo, Legacy bowl, porcelain 2016

An exhibit featuring vessel based work that explores issues surrounding identity and how we see ourselves within the context of society, family, relationships, and most importantly within our own skin.

Opening Reception: Sat, January 27, 6 – 8PM
Ongoing through March 4th

Me, Myself & I is the first of four themed exhibits for 2018, a year featuring artists whose works examine social justice issues and the intricacies of maneuvering life, lifestyles and living within a global society. Me, Myself & I is a national juried exhibition, curated by Kathy King, a renowned artist and educator whose own work reflects the very core themes of the show. King invited three kindred artists whose work reflects identity and self-awareness to exhibit alongside the juried artists: Cheyenne Rudolph, Beth Lo and Matt Nolen.

Juror, Kathy King is currently a studio artist in the Boston area and is an Instructor and the Director of Education at the Ceramics Program – Office for the Arts at Harvard in Allston, MA and is a Visiting Faculty at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She has given workshops and lectures at over fifty colleges, schools and art centers throughout the USA.

“I hope to find work that truly expresses and shares the individuality of the artist. In contemporary ceramics, we have such a long history to reference the individual with a myriad of processes; though technique and design is the building block to many works – concept is what communicates with the viewer. I’ll be looking for strong narratives that look inward and trust what they see.” – Kathy King

Participating artists include: Hadi Abbas, Jamie Adams, Olivia Beens, Nora Brodnicki, Kristen Cliffel, Faith Connor, Kimberly Cook, Auguste Elder, Sheila Ferri, Alex FitzGerald, Jared Gelormino, Mia Halton, Susan Hanfit, Breana Hendricks, Caroline Holder, Hsinyi Huang, Yeonsoo Kim, Cindy Leung, Beth Lo, Scott Lykens, Jennifer Masley, Mac McCuscker, Steven Miller, Matt Nolen, Lola Ogbara, Jessica Oliveira, Ian Park, Laine Rettmer, Don Reynolds, Marilyn Richeda, Cheyenne Rudolph, Kimberly Sheerin, Rae Stern, David Stevens, Joan Stuart, Cheryl Tall, Megan Ward, Alana Wilson, Travis Winters, Heather Wright

The 2018 gallery year will host 4 Degrees of Separation, a series of four exhibitions featuring artists whose works examine the intricacies of maneuvering life, lifestyles and living within a global society with its political and social ramifications. The exhibits will focus on relationships from different vantage points on the intricacies of individualism, racial biases, national identity or environment and how all of it is communicated and understood. Clay Art Center is committed to exhibiting emerging, mid-career, and established artists, as it seeks to become a platform for the field to express potent ideas and relevant topics of our time.
