ON VIEW THRU MARCH 2, 2024: Ceramics in the Environment is a plein-air exhibition of site-specific ceramics at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft’s community-led Craft Garden. Made during the MFAH’s Glassell School of Art’s Special Topics course, 12 artists investigated the creation of artwork for an outdoor environment and responded to the living histories of a site in clay media.
The sculptures on view are installed in dialogue with the plants and raw materials cultivated in the Craft Garden and reflect the flora and fauna of the site. Visitors can explore seed pods rendered in monumental scale, a temporal installation that responds to precipitation, an undulating line sculpture that traces the base of a live tree, and works that reflect concerns about a changing climate.
Exhibiting artists: Angela Corson, Jane Greenberg, Claude Habayeb, Johana Hartjen, Una Kirkpatrick, Adriana Lorusso, Linda May Martin, John O’Brien, Nicole O’Bryan, Meghan Rutzebeck, Suzette Schutze, and Marjorie Silverstein.
