MOUNTED exhibition Red Lodge Clay Center, Montana, Roxanne Jackson Ceramics

MOUNTED / Red Lodge Clay Center, Red Lodge, MT
October 5-28, 2012

Opening Reception: Friday, October 5, from 5-7 pm.

This October, Red Lodge Clay Center will present MOUNTED. An exhibit featuring the works of Lindsay Pichaske, Adelaide Paul, Ryan Blackwell, Thaddeus Erdahl, Amy Santoferraro, Christine Golden, Undine Brod and Roxanne Jackson. Topical to many regions is the ritual of hunting season and the provision of food. Just beyond the border of a ritual born of need are taxidermy arts, which can serve as an analogy for Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. The aforementioned survivalist skill sets are about harnessing natural elements. Decorative or trophy mounting came after our basic needs as humans were met. The work featured in this exhibit will, hopefully, explore the realm beyond basic needs and delve into hazards of modernity with frivolous, dark, and poignant mounts.

The exhibition will be posted online, Monday, October 7 by 10 am at the Red Lodge Clay Center’s website.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am - 6 pm. Sunday,  12 - 4 pm.
