curated by Heather Nameth Bren, NCC exhibition committee member,
professor, and ceramic artist. It will feature the artworks of Christie
Brown (London, UK), Philip Eglin (London, UK), Michelle Erickson
(Yorktown, VA), Bonnie Marie Smith (Kingston, NY), and Vipoo Srivilasa
(Melbourne, AU). The works in the exhibition will respond to personal,
cultural, and religious myths that have grown out of the desire to know
(or the posture to know) the unknowable. Symbols of the god figure, the
mother figure, the self, and the demon have been used to describe
ancient and contemporary narratives. This archetypal cast of characters
is employed as agents of one’s personal or cultural identity, spiritual
devotion, and even power to control the masses.
Vipoo Srivilasa will be in residence at Northern Clay Center prior to
the exhibition working with community members on a collaborative
project. Stay tuned for more information!
