Four artists use ceramics and other materials as a point
of departure to study transformation in the artistic process,
what is lost and what remains. Kate Hardy (DC) examines the slippery delineation between Art & Craft (in public collections). Rebecca Murtaugh (NY) considers the permanent and ephemeral elements of clay. Claire Sherwood (WV) looks closely at the transformation of materials like coal and clay over varying conditions and periods of time. Dina Weston Snead (MD) studies the record of time and touch in an installation that uses existing architecture.
Curated by Margaret Boozer and Claire Huschle.
