May 15 - June 21, 2014

Emma Woffenden continues to explore the figure and the fragmented body in her latest sculpture series, ‘Falling Hard’.

Coming off the success of Glass3 in 2008 and Artomatic 2009, this will be Artomatic’s third international exhibit and the first to feature fine clay art.

Each arts organization has selected the artists whose work will be on display during the 20 day exhibit. Artwork will also be for sale, with all proceeds going to the artist.

To complement the artwork, International Glass and Clay 2013 will host panels at Pepco Edison Place Gallery all month long meant to inspire indepth conversation about cultural diplomacy, Fulbright exchanges and international artists residencies and the arts.
