2008 Autumn Invitational Ceramics Exhibition

The artists in Baldwin-Wallace's Autumn Invitational Ceramics Exhibition explore the traditions and challenges of their medium in a multitude of ways. Diana Bjel's masks, helmets and sculptures have a ritual quality informed by cultures from around the world, and clear religious resonance, but she says they don't represent any specific religion. Sandra Byers' vessels evoke the delicacy of nature - like petals of a flower, or the gills of a mushroom, or the form and detail of coral. Winthrop Byers embraces the functionality of clay, especially in tableware. Fong Choo finds challenge in turning clay into teapots, a process he compares to "poking the sleeping tiger." Yumiko Goto views clay as a partner as she attempts to capture moments of beauty in the natural world. Eva Kwong's sculptural works seem to be a medium for experimenting with color and pattern. Kirk Mangus makes functional pottery, but he also uses it to create a narrative of his life. Work by these accomplished ceramists is on view starting with a reception from 5-8 p.m. Friday at the Fawick Gallery in B-W's Kleist Center for Art and Drama, 95 E. Bagley Rd. in Berea. The exhibit is on view through October 10. Regular hours are 2-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Free. Call 440.826.2152. - Compliments of the Cleveland Scene Magazine
