Ceramics In and Out of Tradition
Ceramics is one of the oldest forms of craft and has been practiced by many diverse cultures for thousands of years. It was not until more recent times however that the medium would be considered as a legitimate art form on par with painting and other more traditionally accepted art practices.
Ceramics programs in art schools have become more popular than ever. Young artists are delving into this media as never before. New approaches are being explored but at the same time some artists are following ceramic traditions. The whole scope of the practice has become very open ended. Artists explore the medium in their own way and with their own vision.
In and Out of Tradition seeks to explore the diverse trends in the ceramic medium with a focus on Los Angeles based artists. The exhibition will feature everything from tradition vessels to ceramic works that are painted. The artists included in the show are: Tetsuji Aono, Phyllis Green, Julia Haft-Candell, Matthias Merkel Hess, Mitsuko Ikeno, Bill Jaros, Shoshi Kanakohato, Matthew May, Brad Miller, Mike Pierzynski, Adam Silverman and Richard Turner
