Description

The 2018 gallery year will feature 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 first exhibition is titled Me, Myself and I and will be followed by THEM, US  and ALL. CAC 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.

Me, Myself and I will be the opening exhibition of the Clay Art Center’s gallery and will start the year’s themed exhibitions. This open juried show invites artists to submit vessel based work that explore issues surrounding identity. Artists are asked to think about such passionate issues such as who we are and how do we see ourselves within the context of society, family, relationships, and most importantly within our own skin? What role does culture, lineage, inheritance, and other characteristics of personality and sub-personalities play in how we see ourselves and define who we are?

This exhibit seeks submissions from artists who use their vessel-based art to explore concepts around self, experiences, and the triumphs and challenges faced either in the daily tasks of living or one’s place in society. This national call for entries will be juried by Kathy King, a renowned artist and educator whose own work reflects the very core theme of the show. As guest juror, she has invited kindred artists Mark Burns, Cheyenne Rudolph, Beth Lo, and Matt Nolen who also use their art to reflect identity and self-awareness.

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
