MARCH 26 – JUNE 6, 2010
Main Gallery

This group exhibition included sculptures by four contemporary ceramic artists who create objects that explore the idea of enclosing or disclosing spaces, such as those created by traditional vessel shapes as well as more abstract forms. Yih-Wen Kuo and Virginia Scotchie focus on the exterior surface of contained spaces, like the skin of a house, making us imagine the interiors; occasionally they cut into the surface to give us a teasing glimpse of what’s inside. Steven Heinemann and Anne Hirondelle focus on the interior spaces, cutting or altering the walls to expose the insides of the forms—as Heinemann notes, stretching the idea of a bowl as a container of space.
