The Hardy Gallery (thehardy.org) presents its fourth and final exhibit of the season, By Fire: A Contemporary Ceramic Exhibition, Aug. 30 through Oct. 13, with an opening reception Aug. 30, 5:30-7 pm.
This exhibit explores the materiality of ceramics by focusing on nonutilitarian, sculptural work. Artists include Christopher L. Davis-Benavides of Milwaukee; Rebecca Carlton, Stephanie Evans and Tony Staroska of Door County; and Minkyu Lee of Green Bay.
These artists have a strong sense of narrative, using the material to create statements about the world, society and our environment. What emerges is a rich display that demonstrates their control over this fragile medium.
The Hardy Gallery, at Ephraim’s Anderson Dock, is open Monday through Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm; and Sunday, 12-5 pm. Admission is free.
