Oct. 22-Dec. 3: Juried ceramics exhibit explores art of kitchenware

FREDERICK, Md.—A ceramics exhibition of sculptural and functional pieces used in the kitchen will be on display Oct. 22-Dec. 3 at Hood College.

“In the Kitchen” is a juried show of sculptural and functional kitchenware pieces as interpreted by nationally and internationally known ceramic artists. This exhibition showcases the work of contemporary ceramic artists and how they create for both utility and enjoyment. Sculptural work is open to interpretation but could be trompe l’oeil, narrative or mixed media.

This exhibit was juried by Kristin Müller and curated by Lisa York. Müller is the executive director of Peters Valley School of Craft, is an adjunct instructor of ceramic arts at Hood College. She specializes in wood-fired ceramics. She maintains a studio with an Anagama hybrid kiln in Pennsylvania and in 2007 authored “The Potter’s Studio Handbook: A Start-to-Finish Guide to Hand-Built and Wheel-Thrown Ceramics.” Lisa York is the ceramic arts technical coordinator and director of the galleries at Hood College.

The show will be in the Whitaker Campus Center Gallery at Hood College, which is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
