MAY 12 – JULY 1, 2012
Main Gallery

The exhibition, Self-[contained], featured freestanding ceramic sculptures and large-scale vessels that evoke the whimsical, the mournful, the absurd, and the fantastical through depictions of the human face or figure. Some of these works suggested a bodily transmutation into otherworldly, human chimeras. Others exaggerated the human form, thereby bringing the private psychologies we often project onto figural artwork to the forefront. Imaginative, yet grounded in the reality of emotion, the artwork in Self-[contained] gestured toward the body we inhabit and the consciousness within which we exist. Artists included in the exhibition were Lisa Clague, Michael CorneyJenny MendesAndy NasisseDerek WeisbergJanis Mars Wunderlich, and Kensuke Yamada
