Collaborating with Clay at the Baltimore Clayworks.

Baltimore Clayworks hosts the exhibition COUPLETS, curated by Exhibitions Director, Mary Cloonan featuring established and emerging ceramic artists who share a studio. This exhibition runs March 7th- April 17th, 2009 with an opening reception on Saturday, March 7th, from 6 to 8 pm. Admission is free.

The exhibition Couplets explores the studio energy between artists who share a space and the artwork from that collaboration. Creating a dynamic show of several pairs of artists that illustrates the talent and enthusiasm in the realm of ceramic art and the synergy of a communal studio.

These partnerships may be domestic or creative; married couples, friends or family. The studio environment may have one person throwing and the other decorating or working separately under one roof. The resulting work may be a singular voice or two diverse styles that are united in dedication and passion for clay.

This show is really worth checking out! I went this weekend for the opening and was blown away! To top it off in the Solo Gallery clayworks artist Ann Hazles has a show of work done with the man of her life combining her ceramics and his photography. Truly worth the drive or walk over next time you make a Whole Foods run.
