Join us for for a walk-through and discussion about the individual artistic processes of these 4 important contemporary ceramic artists!

Tip Toland seeks to mirror the vulnerability of humanity back to the viewer. Her mesmerizing, hyperreal figures hover disconcertingly between the fantastic and the mundane.

Jamie Walker's semi-abstract ceramic forms play on the inherent contradiction between the ephemeral nature of their subject matter and the concrete timelessness of sculptural objects.

George Rodriguez's work embodies balance: his lively figures are a mix of playful and serious, and the heavily embellished surfaces invite close examination while the large scale of the objects draws the eye from afar.

Anne Drew Potter masterfully renders imaginary bodies that are anatomically informed but also strange and distorted. Her figures are performers, full of an exaggerated emotionality and sense of self-consciousness that invites empathy and addresses the ways in which social meaning is projected onto forms of the body.

Ceramic Invitational: NW Clay is on view now through May 2, 2015.
