Event description

Description

Wayne Higby, an acclaimed ceramic artist and educator, will join with fellow juror and VCU Professor Kelcy Chase Folsom to open the LIES exhibition at District Clay.

In a tip toward our political climate, the juried show features ceramic work that features deception, either through innovative techiques, visual stories and political statements. Ceramics, that most plastic of mediums, is a perfect vehicle.

Featuring 18 ceramic artists, the works include:

  • an easily shattered Make America Great Again cap by Connor Czora
  • a new Mount Rushmore for the Age of Trump by Becky Gottsegan
  • a World War I battlefield that illustrates our fragile and non-linear existence by David Da Silva
  • an enormous pinwheel that flags the dangers of denying climate change by Jeremy Jernegan
  • a man forced to rip asunder his cultural moorings in order to remain free by Matt Rohde

At the opening, Higby and Folsom will discuss their vision for the show and announce awards.

The following artists will also be present: Connor Czora, Patsy Cowen, David DaSilva, Becky Gottsegen, Jeremy Jernegan, Liisa Nelson, Jacob Raeder & Lyla Morozowski, Kevin Rohde & Hannah Shaban.

OPENING NIGHT FESTIVITIES: Two fun games about LIES - I AM DECEIVED and PLAYING FAVORITES. Play along and win a free ONE SHOT class or one of our SEIZE THE CLAY t-shirts.

Doors Open at 6 pm. Higby and Folsom lecture and awards at 6:30 pm. District Clay game results and prizes at 7 pm. Light refreshments served.

Street parking is available directly in front of the building. The District Clay Gallery is at the door on the left of the Off the Beaten Track Warehouse Building.
