Magic Dirt, National Juried Ceramics Competition
Jan 15th - Feb 20th, 2011 - http://al.odu.edu/art/gallery/index.php
Jan. 15-Feb. 20, 2011
This national exhibition, juried by Juan Granados and Richard Nickel, is designed to showcase innovative contemporary ceramics sculpture and functional orms.
The jurors for Magic Dirt were intrigued and impressed with the artists who entered the show. They proceeded to jointly and individually select pieces for the exhibit that met both our individual and shared criteria. "We wanted works that spoke eloquently about the artists' abilities to communicate their artistic visions and statements through the use of ceramics and in some cases mixed media. Ultimately we chose artworks that were impressive examples of artists communicating with visual interplay in media, commentary, social and political awareness, humor, and a range of aesthetic exploration. Overall, we believe the exhibition presents wonderful and excellent examples of personal artistic narratives in ceramics."
Opening Reception: Jan. 21, at 7 p.m.
