June 4 - July 1, 2014
N.A.W.A. Gallery, 80 Fifth Avenue, Suite 1405, NYC
"Dynamic Narratives" is a a group exhibition of women ceramic sculptors featuring the artwork of Amber Aguirre, Cindy Biles, Cindy Billingsley, Angelique Brickner, Natasha Dikareva, Linda Ganstrom, Marilee Hall, Nancy Kubale, Nicole Merkens, and Lisa Reinertson.
Women Ceramic Sculptors is a group that addresses the important issues of our society, using clay to express their point of view. Clay is the only medium that uses every element-- fire, water, air, and earth. It is meant to be touched by the heart, the eyes, and the hands. The Women Ceramic Sculptors confront, debate and understand the world around them by giving life to it through clay. They are artists turned observers, producing work which powerfully voices their individual and collective experiences.
As per the group's statement, they are "artists who seek to open the channels of communication through the medium of clay, connecting with each other as a group and individually." Citing William Faulkner as their inspiration, the Women Ceramic Sculptors believe that "the aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again, since it is life."
A reception was held at the N.A.W.A. Gallery on June 5th, from 5 - 7 p.m.
