Traver Gallery is pleased to announce part two of our three-part exhibition series, Ceramics Invitational: National Clay. This show aims to promote clay as a fine art medium while highlighting its contemporary applications.
For this exhibition, Traver Gallery invited 15 contemporary ceramic artists presently residing and working within the United States to exhibit examples of their current work. During the month of July, the entirety of Traver Gallery’s 3200 square foot exhibition space will be dedicated to this important survey exhibition.
Highlights from the exhibition include several large scale sculptures and wall mounted panels by internationally acclaimed artist, Jun Kaneko, one life-size self portrait by the renowned Tip Toland, a variety of totems by John Balistreri, Professor of Art and the head of the ceramic art program at Bowling Green State University, and a series of deconstructed works by artist and Artistic Director of the Archie Bray Foundation Steven Young Lee. Also of note, the reconstructed ceramic shard assemblages by Zemer Peled, colorfully curious and humorous abstract forms by Nathan Prouty and John Souter, and modern slip cast sculpture by Miles Spadone.
