Event description

Description

In this fascinating artist talk and solo show open at the District Clay Gallery, Joe will examine how the concept of fusion, which he argues is essential to contemporary American society, informs his most most recent work with shino glazed vessels.

As an Assistant Professor at Marymount Univeristy, Hicks' ceramic work emphasizes the melding of layers between clay, slip, and glaze, creating a multitude of color and textural responses on the surfaces of his shino vessels.

The complexity of these shino surfaces, and the importance of their fusion into one entity, may be comparable to issues related to contemporary American society. Because Americanism is built on the foundation of democracy, allowing for the coalescence of different ideas, its health depends on its ability to fuse the complex layers of different cultures and ideas together.

Joe's solo show at the District Clay Gallery - Fusion: The Elements of Integration, Recent Ceramics by Joe Hicks opens with his artist talk.

Joe is also putting on an expanded Shino Glaze Workshop with a special Carbon Trap firing at District Clay on March 23rd.

Light refreshment served. Doors open at 6 pm. Artist talk starts at 6:30 pm.

Parking is available directly in front of the building.
