  • Description

    The exhibition speaks to the physical impact artists have on clay. Bending, folding, wedging, throwing and scoring, the artist’s mark making is immediate and literal. Through content, use and integration into society, this concept can be far more abstract or suggestive. Ceramics artifacts have chronicled cultural growth, existence and decline. Currents: IMPACT is a national juried exhibition of contemporary ceramic artworks that explore social, conceptual, psychological and physical notions of the word impact.

    Currents is an annual exhibition of contemporary ceramic artwork sponsored by H.O.T. Clay, the University of Florida (UF) School or Art + Art History ceramics student organization. The show was open to anyone nationwide 18 years of age or older. Submitted works were required to be at least 50 percent clay, and must have been completed within the past two years. Michael Strand, North Dakota State University professor and department head, and 2015 Ceramics Monthly’s Ceramic Artist of the Year, is the juror of this exhibition.

    A public reception will be held Friday, March 13, 2015 from 7-9 p.m.
