Shades Of Clay: A Multi-Cultural Look At Contemporary Clay

Jan 6-Feb 24, 2007 This exhibition celebrates how multi-cultural and multi-ethnic contemporary ceramics are today. The styles and themes are individual to each artist, but still share the common thread of ethnicity. Ethnicity is the filter in which ideas from the artists flow through to manifest themselves in a myriad of forms. The sophistication and complexity of the works and the artists are as rich and diverse as the types of clay used to create them. The exhibit features work from twenty artists that are African-American, Afro-Cuban, Thai, Chinese, Moorish, Chicano, Latino, Native American and Cuban.
