Reception: Sunday, May 6th, 2:00 – 4:00pm
The biennial State of Clay is a juried show, showcasing original and innovative ceramic work. Current and former residents of Massachusetts are eligible to apply. The show aims to broaden public awareness of contemporary ceramic art and to provide a venue for Massachusetts’ clay artists. The pieces juried into the show reveal a wide array of ceramics, which highlight a variety of building styles, firing techniques and clay types.
Our artists are educators, studio potters, established professionals, and emerging artists who have found clay to be a malleable medium that has inspired them to seek the best of themselves in their presentations.
Juror Emily Zilber, the current curator of Contemporary Decorative Arts with the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, juried the show. She selected awards in person and a video presentation of her talk will be shown at the Artists’ Reception on Sunday, May 6th beginning at 3pm.
In her Juror’s Statement, Zilber elaborated on her choices. She sought pieces that displayed “creative composition and design alongside, and in dialog with, a skilled and self-assured approach to” construction. Zilber sought a quality in each piece that draws the viewer in, begging for “additional time and consideration”. The 2018 State of Clay is a reflection of her vision. It is a compelling display, showcasing the current state of clay artistry in Massachusetts.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Friday, and Sunday from 12 – 4pm. Saturday 10am- 4pm
