July-August Exhibitions at Clayworks

This event occurred in the past.
Baltimore Clayworks presents wood fired, functional ceramic work by Jeremy Wallace in the Main Gallery. This exhibition is the culmination of Wallace’s year in the Baltimore Clayworks' studio as our Lormina Salter Fellowship Artist. His solo exhibition will feature functional vessels of slab construction, that incorporate stacked stretched layers to create textural depth. The vessels are wood fired to catch and enhance the unrefined edges of his pieces. The sculptural work of Susan Beiner will be on display in the Solo Gallery. Beiner is the winner of Clayworks’ 2014 Cup Benefit Show and was awarded her own solo exhibition in 2015. Heavily influenced by nature and the environment, Beiner’s organic slip-cast elements are assembled with additional mixed media of synthetic, manmade materials such as vinyl, rubber and foam. Her work explores the resulting state, or dissolution, of all that was once natural, but is now genetically modified or altered, manufactured or processed, manipulated or cloned. Clayworks’ Project Space will feature the work of 2014-2015 Margie and Tom Pozefsky Fellowship artist, Missy Steele. Missy uses sgraffito and mishima to decorate her vessels, carving imagery from dreams, memories and social contexts on bold colored backgrounds. In the Community Arts Gallery, Aletheia Shin’s work with Korean senior adults who created Korean onggi jars that tell the story of Korean immigrants will be on display. These exhibitions run July 11- Aug. 29.
