Exhibit: SONYA CLARK
When: December 8, 2011 - February 12, 2012
Where: Rogers Gallery, Southwest School of Art, San Antonio, TX
Paula Owen, President of the Southwest School of art and one of the organizers of the traveling exhibition wrote this in the catalog: "Trained in the fiber arts, Clark today weaves together not threads but ideas and symbols in order to produce elegant yet demanding works of art. The visceral but quotidian properties of her works, as well as their exquisite execution, force our attention, compelling the viewer to grapple with their sweeping implications. To explore the poignancy and potency of lineage and the biases of history through works of art requires unique cognitive and perceptive skills." The catalog also has essays by Ashley Kistler, Director of the Anderson Gallery at VCU, and Namita Gupta Wiggers, Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon. Catalog available.
through November 19
Exhibit: SONYA CLARK (solo exhibit)
"The color black has long held a fascination in art, craft and design. The exhibition looks at black as both a physical and an emotional starting point for a group of Irish and American artist's, craftspeople and designers. Pairing people from across a range of disciplines ranging from architecture, ceramics, furniture, glass, jewelry, metal, painting, photography, textiles and wood this exhibition features work from the most interesting creative voices from Ireland in dialogue with their American peers. Under the creative direction of curator Brian Kennedy this exhibition will offer an insight into the studio practice of these artists and their common concerns, a simple starting point with a complex outcome." The exhibit will travel to Ireland in 2012. Catalog forthcoming.
through December 4
