Social Objects by Socially Engaged Craft Collective

East and Central Galleries

7/06/18 - 8/18/18

July 6 – August 18, 2018 | FREE | open during regular gallery hours
Closing Reception: Friday, August 17, 6:00PM – 8:00PM

Social Objects features recent work from members of the Socially Engaged Craft Collective, an expanding network of artists who create a wide range of socially engaged art projects that are rooted in the rich history of ceramic objects. The exhibition displays objects that developed from the lineage of ceramic craft and simultaneously engage viewers in a social experience surrounding the object. The role that potters and artisans play in society has changed, and what we are doing reflects that change. These objects serve a social function beyond a utility or aesthetic, they have the potential to share interactions, create experiences, and build community.

Featured Artists: Amanda Evans (OR), nicole gugliotti (WA), Holly Hanessian (FL), Jeni Gard (GA), Cheyenne Rudolph (FL), Lauren Karle (NM), Forest Gard (GA), Anna Metcalfe (MN), Juliette Walker (ME).

The photographs in this exhibition portray the waters of the Everglades in a moment of serenity and reflection. They invite viewers to pause, become one with the vista, and appreciate the beautiful landscapes in this exhibition. This body of work is part of a year-long project by Phoenix, where she photographs South Florida’s wetlands and the Everglades.
