Shirt Factory Artists at Wired Gallery

I am now settled in my new studio located in the Shirt Factory building in Kingston NY.
The studio is a wonderful light filled space with comforting sounds of the passing train several times a day and a community of artists working quietly behind their studio doors.
New work has begun and with plenty of space and the addition of a large oval Bailey kiln, I am excited to see what comes next !

 Last night an exhibition showcasing the work of  22 Shirt Factory artists opened at Wired Gallery in High Falls. A steady crowd packed the gallery during the opening and it was great to see so many old and new friends and supporters.

Art Ichol - International Ceramic Sculpture Residency and Symposium Feb 2016

A month after my return from the residency I am still processing all that is India, from color and sound to the enormous generosity of the people.
Invited by artist Madvhi Subrahmanian the 7 residency artists gathered in Dehli  from different corners of the globe and continued our journey together for 15 hours by train to rural  Maihar,M.P. in the middle of India.

We were greeted by our host Ambica Beri and welcomed us to Art Ichol, the bucolic setting that would be our home and studio for the next 2 weeks.

The theme of the residency was exploration and experimentation within the format of large ceramic sculpture. It was our collective hope to each make and fire a large piece to leave behind for the sculpture park within a 10 day time frame.
The group was well chosen by  Madvhi as we were all work maniacs and up to the huge challenge! Work was made, a wood kiln was built, several kilns were fired and some of the works survived with flying colors!

We got to know each other as we worked, ate, shared slides of our work and did some sightseeing during our memorable time in Maihar.

Returning to Dehli at the end we had a one day symposium with Indian Ceramic artists. Slide presentations were shared and cross cultural topics discussed. I was very impressed by the excellence of the works and presentations of the Indian Artists. There is something familiar among clay artists wherever one goes in the world and we all connected easily as if we already knew each other.

I took over 1000 photos and am still sorting. You can view a few of my impressions of India on Instagram  and a journal of our  work during the residency which is public view on  my  Facebook page.

Eventually I will post an album on Flicker for anyone interested in seeing more.
But for now the studio calls and it's back to work inspired and refreshed by all that is India!

In a couple of days I will be leaving for India to participate in an International ceramic sculpture residency  in Maihar Pradesh followed by a symposium in Dehli. It is a very exciting opportunity  and I am thrilled to be joining Madvhi Subrihamian and 7 other artists for 19 days of art making and discussion with our Indian colleagues.
