“Of Many” Contemporary Ceramic Exhibition

March 16 @ 10:00 am - March 23 @ 5:00 pm

NCECA 2024 Conjunction Vortex Purple

March 16-23 at The Robins Nature Center

10am – 5pm

(closed Monday, March 18)

Maymont is pleased to host Of Many, an art exhibition showcasing contemporary ceramic sculpture, will be on view March 16-23 (closed Monday) with a reception to be held on Thursday, March 21, 5:30 – 7:30pm. Featuring the work of ceramic artists Grace Potter, Alice Walton, S. Lantz, Jess Riva Cooper, Lindsay Pichaske, and Amanda Salov, this exhibition will explore coalescence, where separate elements merge into transformative works, pushing the boundaries of ceramics through novel approaches and accumulated gestures.

In conjunction with the 58th Annual National Council on Education for the Ceramics Arts (NCECA), the six artists sending artworks from the Northern Coast of California, the English countryside, Northwest Arkansas, St Louis, Toronto, and Seattle will be sharing work that are the accumulations Of Many.

Depicting a vibrant animal with the skin of a repeated texture, Lindsay Pichaske’s ceramic sculptures remind us of our kinship to other animals. In Alice Walton’s abstract work, color is minimalized and reduced to allow for the viewer’s focus to be on the changing light and shadows across the translucent contour lines. While Amanda Salov’s sculpture also focuses on the changing light, her object will hang, altering our preconceived notions of what is soft and what is heavy. S. Lantz will also share a delicately hanging piece made of multiple thoughtfully constructed shapes to form a chandelier. While Grace Potter thinks of her work as ecological, each distinct gesture makes meaning in its relation to the other. As Jess Riva Cooper creates, she works in an invasive, even parasitic way - using fired pieces, and scavenged and broken remnants of sculptures. These intrusive pieces pierce the soft clay skin of the figures, building upon the fired surfaces.
