Contemporary Ceramics 2021 is on view at The Dairy Barn Arts Center, Athens, Ohio
October 9 – November 28, 2021
This exhibition features new artwork by sixteen ceramic artists living throughout the country. Viewers will enjoy an exploration of ceramic art techniques while enjoying contemporary pottery and sculptures by both emerging artists and established makers in the ceramics field.
This exhibition is an invitational show curated by Brad Schwieger, Ohio University Ceramics Professor and Tom Bartel, Ohio University Ceramics Professor and program chair.
“Both Tom Bartel and I wanted to include artists who are producing more abstracted sculpture. Tom selected artists whose focus is on the figure, while as a potter, I was interested in selecting artists who address the vessel in their work,” said Schwieger.
Participating artists: Kurt Anderson, Eliza Au, Molly Anne Bishop, Marty Fielding, Richard W. James, Matt Kelleher, Gunyoung Kim, Benjamin Lambert, Shalya Marsh, George Metropoulos McCauley, Robert Boomer Moore, David C. Robinson, Tim Rowan, Deborah Schwartzkopf, Linda Sikora, Jamie Bates Slone
The exhibition is sponsored by The Athens County Foundation, Ohio University College of Fine Arts School of Art + Design, Athens Eye Care, Quidel, and Jackie O’s.
