Freedom of Expression
May 7, 2017 at 2:00 pm–4:30 pm
The Ceramics and Painters Guilds of LACS join together in presenting “Freedom of Expression,” an exhibition highlighting the best works of artists of both guilds.
The paintings feature the artists’ creative arrangements in a variety of mediums such as oils, acrylics, pastel, charcoal, and mixed media, and subject areas such as landscapes, still life, portraits, and abstracts. The Ceramics Guild displays a wide range of creative works in clay, represented in functional ware, sculpture, and works of social commentary. The expressive nature of ceramics is exemplified in the work of this diverse and talented group of artists.
We invite you to join us in this wonderful collaboration of the Ceramics and Painters Guilds enjoying our “Freedom of Expression”. Many of the artworks in the show are offered for sale. Matted original and prints of paintings and printed cards will also be on sale in our “Gallery To Go.” This is a part of the Lexington Open Studios weekend.
Special for ArtWeek, Arthur Halvorsen will be giving a talk about his process and inspiration. His work evolves through creative repetition; making the same form over and over, tweaking it with sprinkles of spontaneity. Halvorsen says the best pleasure is in the creativity, not expecting the ordinary.
About the guest presenter: Arthur Halvorsen holds a BFA in Ceramics, Maine College of Art, Portland, ME and is a resident artist at Mudflat Studios in Somerville MA. Arthur’s work is handbuilt functional earthenware using bisque molds, slip, underglaze, sprig molds and colorful glazes. He was featured in the November/December 2010 issue of Pottery Making Illustrated and was included in the 2014 State of Clay exhibition.
The exhibition runs from April 29 – May 14. Gallery hours: Tuesday – Friday & Sunday, 12:00pm – 4:00pm; Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm; closed Monday.
