Across the Divide encompassed the vast array of contemporary ceramics in the sculptural and installation genres. This exhibition features large-scale sculptural ceramic artwork, and uses the Continental Divide as a metaphor for the artist working in clay. The show reaches across that divide to artists who have distinguished their work from traditional techniques and stereotypes within the medium. Participating artists were encouraged to submit work that pushes boundaries.
This exhibition features artists from across the country. All forms of ceramic sculpture, installation and new media work will be included. All works will have some ceramic component and range in scale from hand held to monumental.
Across the Divide opens with a reception on Saturday, June 2, 2012, from 6-8pm. Many of the participating artists will be in attendance, and there will be live music and some treats. The exhibition will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 11am-5pm, from June 5, through July 28, 2012, at the Coconino Center for the Arts. Admission to the reception and gallery is free and open to the public.
