Challenging the Cabin Mentality
By George Mason [m], Sequoia Miller, Jill Oberman, Sean O'Connell

As more "time and space" opportunities become available, it seems important to ask why? Are residencies just lines on a resume or is there something about walking through a new door that is essential to the creative process? Are residencies "livelier experiments" when we are more intentional about their design?

Meredyth Knows Ceramics

Contemporary Ceramics Selected by Meredyth Hyatt Moses

March 6 – 28, 2015 at Gallery NAGA

 

For this exhibition, Gallery NAGA turns to an old friend, Meredyth Hyatt Moses, now an independent art advisor and for twenty years the irresistible force of Clark Gallery in Lincoln, Massachusetts.  Moses was invited to organize an exhibition around her love of all things clay;  the result of her aesthetic enthusiasms are both exciting and unpredictable. 

Meredyth Knows Ceramics runs from March 6 through 28.  A reception for the artists, the curator, and the public will be held at the gallery on Friday, March 6 from 6 to 8 pm. 

In making her fifth appearance at Gallery NAGA as an independent curator, Moses revisits her ceramic heroes.  Much of the work on exhibition is figurative, a particular area of focus for Moses.  Alongside the totemic forms of Peter VandenBerge and Glenn Takai are quieter, elegant vessel forms by Carol Glenn and Chris Gustin.  Abstract forms are well represented by Cheryl Ann Thomas and Robert Brady.  Surfaces range from crusty to pristine and colors span from crisp white to dramatic neons.

Meredyth Knows Ceramics represents an assortment of national icons in the field of clay alongside a few shining new faces.
