October 02, 2014
This month we have the work of five sculptural artists on display; everything from figurative ceramics to sculpturally functional work.

Show #1 : Functionally Sculptural
Work by Shadow May and Jerilyn Virden.

Please join us on October 4th from 6 PM -8 PM for an artist's reception celebrating new work by ceramicists Shadow May and Jerilyn Virden. Although each artist’s work is quite distinct, both Shadow May and Jerilyn Virden create pieces that are quiet tonally, allowing the inventiveness of their forms to shine. Each artist is equally fluent in slab-techniques and wheel-throwing and carries a rich vocabulary of form and surface. Soulful, eggshell surfaces merge with vessels inspired by Japanese armor; deceptively light, organic, twisting forms lay ready to receive a meal or to change the character of a room. While much of the work in this exhibition is functional, it possesses a dual identity as sculpture. The show runs thru November during our regular business hours:
Tuesday – Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 12-5.
Work from the exhibition can be seen and purchased online beginning 12:00 AM, October 4th. For more information call 828-688-3599.

Show #2 : A Body of Work
Ceramics by Lisa Clague and David Robinson

Help us celebrate the work of internationally known ceramic artists Lisa Clague and David Robinson this Saturday, October 4th from 6 PM - 8 PM. Clague and Robinson expand our understanding of what it means to be human through vulnerable and sometimes humorous depictions of the human form. Clague finds inspiration through her own dreams as well as fairytales, antique toys, nature, and the work of artists as diverse as Hieronymous Bosch and Louise Bourgeois. Robinson’s forms explore “shared human experience, especially the quiet struggles and obstacles we all face.” His work is deeply inspired by the literature of Shakespeare, T.S. Eliot and Raymond Carver. Robinson's clay becomes a stage on which human dramas unfold. This powerful show will run until December 5th during regular hours. For more information call 828-688-3599.

Featured Artist:
Lynn Duryea

Please join Crimson Laurel Gallery for a reception celebrating the work of Lynn Duryea October 4th from 6-8. Growing up on the extreme end of Long Island, New York, Duryea became fascinated with transition zones, "where one reality shifts to another." This quiet drama of land meeting water has, in part, led to her rich vocabulary of "softened geometry" and exploration of the power along edges. From a distance, her interesting forms demand attention, but upon closer inspection her surfaces unfold authentic histories of accretion and wearing away. Her forms and surfaces conjure natural and industrial landscape and appear to have evolved over long periods of time. Duryea is currently a Professor of Art at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina and has been featured on the cover of Ceramics Monthly

Friends of the Crimson Laurel Gallery,

In our last update, we only gave you a few details about Andy Palmer, our new gallery director. He arrived in Bakersville a couple of weeks ago and is putting the finishing touches on the gallery for Thursday’s annual Spring opening. When we hired Andy, we got a nice surprise and a little more than we bargained for. More about that later.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Nicole Aquillano inside her studio in Boston, MA. We all admire her pieces at Crimson Laurel Gallery on a daily basis and it was such a privilege to chat with her in person & be walked through her process.
