About the exhibition

As ceramic artists, we are
constantly conscious of our physical impact on clay. Bending, folding,
wedging, throwing, and scoring. Our mark making is immediate and
literal. Through content, use, and integration into society, this
concept can be far more abstract or suggestive. Ceramics artifacts have
chronicled cultural growth, existence and decline. The CURRENTS: IMPACT
is a national juried exhibition of contemporary ceramic artworks that
explore social, conceptual, psychological, and physical notions of the
word impact.
