Clay Pride @ MudFire Gallery

 Amy Santoferraro


Opens October 12, 2012

MudFire Gallery and ceramicist Kathy King have joined forces to
create a very special exhibition that will coincide with Atlanta’s 42nd
Annual PRIDE Festival. Kathy was kind enough to curate the show and
select artists for this invitation. Participating artists were asked to
create work in a show of support for the LGBT community. The results are
humorous, heartfelt, insightful, affectionate and occasionally

Participating artists were invited, regardless of their own
sexual preference, to show their support of the LGBT community by
sending 1-2 works of art. The show opens the same weekend as Atlanta’s
42nd Annual PRIDE Festival being held October 13th-14th. If you have
ever been to Atlanta for PRIDE you know it is an incredible event with
one of the most spectacular parades in the country with over 5,000 very
colorful people attending the festival!

In the spirit of PRIDE, we requested works for the show that celebrate
or reflect upon the LGBT community, but that could also address themes
of tolerance and diversity. Artists were invited to to take aim at their
favorite bigots, to employ humor, wield sarcasm, affectionately
document, or just show their colors.

The resulting exhibit is as diverse as the community it celebrates, and
certainly one of the liveliest we have had the pleasure to host. We hope
you enjoy it as well!


We’ll kick off the exhibit with a celebration and artist reception on Friday, October 12, 2012 from 5:00 – 9:00 pm.

Work will post in preview mode by October 8, and will be available for purchase starting Noon on Friday, October 12, 2012.
