Artists at Work regularly hosts exhibitions that showcase alumni and student art, either connected to a class assignment or an individual project. Exhibiting in the street-front gallery provides an opportunity to learn more about the exhibition process from curating, hanging and lighting to pricing and reception planning.
Explorations in Clay: Adrian King ’12
Artists at Work Exhibition Space
April 7—April 19, 2017
Evolving Perceptions is a showing of functional and sculptural wares that are exploring a conversation between surface, form and the ever changing perspective of functional objects. Adrian King recently worked as an apprentice to a production potter in North Carolina by the name of Mark Hewitt. There he learned to produce functional pottery at a high standard keeping with pottery traditions tied to english slipware and southern folk pottery. Since his time working in North Carolina, he has been developing a body of work that speaks of the relationship of his interests in atmospheric firing with gas and wood, and the skills and techniques he learned as an apprentice. He hopes to be able to capture the beauty of the materials used through simple yet activating surfaces that speak true to the process of the craft.
