James May Gallery presents their newest exhibit, Ceramics Sculpture Culture, with an opening reception Aug. 4, 5:30 – 8 pm. The show was curated by Taylor Robenalt and features the Ceramics Sculpture Culture, a collective of emerging ceramic sculptors. The exhibit runs Aug. 3 – 28.
Ceramics Sculpture Culture is collective of artists whose intent is to support and promote the growth and understanding of contemporary ceramic sculpture. Sculpture has always been a major part of the ceramics conversation and Ceramics Sculpture Culture would like to use its platform to encourage more growth in the sculpture area. Ceramics Sculpture Culture intends on accomplishing this ideal by showing as a group in galleries nationwide, creating and hosting informative workshops in studios and art centers, writing and publishing articles in contemporary art publications, and participating in panel discussions and symposiums throughout the year. To stay up-to-date with the group, follow Ceramics Sculpture Culture on Instagram.
Ceramicists included in the exhibit are: Taylor Robenalt, Kevin Rohdes, Travis Winters, Rachel Ballard, Ben Lambert, Kenzuke Yamada, Jamie Bates Slone, Richard W. James, Kyungmin Park and Sara E. Morales.
