Plus, these ceramic artists:

Gina Picirrilli-Hayden creates textured and life-like ceramics that reflect the beautiful imperfection of nature. She is especially interested in the way the natural world's strength and frailty parallels human nature.

Joan Zagrobelny is inspired by natural objects that maintain their beauty because-or in spite of-the patina of age, erosion, or weathering. Her ceramic sculptures appear to strain and twist upward, striving to move past obstacles that block their growth.

JANE HARTSOOK GALLERY @ GREENWICH HOUSE POTTERY

JANUARY 16 – FEBRUARY 13, 2015
Artist Reception: Friday, January 16, 6 – 8PM

The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present the New York City Solo Exhibition debut of Alabama-based artist Lee Somers. Lee constructs multilayered assemblages – mosaics of miscellaneous resplendent ceramic shards that reference, among others, early Chinese landscape paintings. Lee’s ceramic paintings are narratives that “compress geologic time” collapsing the entirety of human civilization into a moment.

Lee Somers (b. 1977) works in ceramics and mixed media to explore a variety of interests in geology, landscape, material culture and architecture. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in galleries and museums, most recently at the Fort Collins Lincoln Center (Colorado) and the Seattle Design Center (Washington). A teacher and artist recently awarded the Franzen Teaching Fellowship at Colorado State University and Art 342. Lee currently lives in Montevallo, Alabama where he is an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Montevallo.
