"Seen/Unseen," an exhibition of works by the members of Clay in ComMN, a collective of emerging female ceramic artists located in Minneapolis, Minn., is on display inside Gallery Two of the Appalachian Center for Craft through the month of February.
Artists Kasey Bullerman, Suzanna S. Altman, Cynthia Rae Levine, Roberta Massuch and Kip O'Krongly use varied directions in clay to explore the broad notion of the seen and unseen.
This concept is approached with unique sensibilities by each artist, from symbolic or narrative, to literal or imagined. One artist may look to the relationship of form to line or emphasize color through its absence. Another artist may explore the representation of the interior and exterior world, or look to elements of life often ignored or forgotten.
While methods of creation vary, this group of female artists shares a common passion for a common material in a common location. Through the context of seen verses unseen, this exhibition highlights a selection of contemporary ceramic work emerging from the strong history of Minnesota ceramics.
The Appalachian Center for Craft is located about six miles from Interstate 40 at Exit 273 (Smithville /McMinnville). Go south on Highway 56. Turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center. The gallery is open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
