Art school to hold ceramics show

Staff report

Paducah School of Art and Design will hold its National Ceramics Invitational in the Clemens Gallery at West Kentucky Community & Technical College with an opening reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday. Admission to the exhibition is free and open to everyone.

The exhibition, which will remain on view through Feb. 13, features a selection of works by leading clay artists employing a contemporary approach to the art of ceramics. The art on display includes a variety of hand-built and wheel-thrown works, reflecting a broad range of approaches to working with clay.

Paducah School of Art and Design ceramics Professor John Hasegawa will curate the exhibition. Participating artists include Hasegawa; Pattie Chalmers, Southern Illinois University; Jason Hess, Northern Arizona University; Robert "Boomer" Moore, West Virginia University; John Neely, Utah State University; C.J. Niehaus, Paducah School of Art and Design; Tom O'Malley, Worcester State University; Lindsay Oesterritter, Western Kentucky University; and Carol Snyder, Columbus, Ohio.

Dean Paul Aho acknowledges the Ceramics Invitational's role as a singular regional opportunity to see cutting-edge work by the medium's leading artists.

"John brings a trained and fresh eye to curating each year's exhibition, eliciting a sense of awe and wonder among viewers," Aho said. "Showcasing a variety of work in the field at the highest level of technical achievement and aesthetic merit, like all of PSAD invitational exhibitions, the show also serves to open the eyes of students to paths they might otherwise not see."

Clemens Gallery is located in the Clemens Fine Arts Center on the campus of West Kentucky Community & Technical College at 4810 Alben Barkley Drive in Paducah. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
