Exhibit opens at Hartwick College
“Investigating the Vessel: An Exhibition of Contemporary Craft” went on display Thursday in the Foreman Gallery of the Anderson Center for the Arts at Hartwick College.
Within the exhibit, which is free and open to the public, six artists address the idea of the vessel as a conceptual form with a focus on fine craftsmanship in the making of objects of various mediums that reference utilitarian function, but are not bound to being functional.
Artists are J. Penney Burton, who works in fiber arts, of Columbia, Mo.; Autumn Cipala, who works in ceramics, of Rockland, Maine; Sara Washbush, a metalsmith from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada; John Oles, who works in ceramics, from New Orleans; Dorie Millerson, a fiber artist from Toronto; and David Naito, a glass artist from Brooklyn.
As part of the exhibit, Naito will give a glass blowing demonstration in the Anderson Center for the Arts at 10 a.m. today, and on Oct. 23 and 24, Oles and Tyler Gulden will give a two-day workshop on ceramics, pottery and other art forms, with a formal lecture planned for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 5:30 p.m. in Room 138 of the Anderson Center for the Arts.
Stephanie Rozene, assistant professor of art at Hartwick College, has curated the exhibit, which will be open through Oct. 18.
