Conversation with the Artists: Saturday, October 20, 2012, 3-4 p.m.
Joe Pinkleman New Work
In his latest exhibition, Joe Pinkelman continues a series of work he first developed in Jingdezhen, China. The city has had a significant impact on his work, particularly through his experiences at the Jingdezhen ceramic residency, Pottery Workshop. Using decals, high-fired porcelain, thrown and press molded forms, Pinkleman’s ceramic creations fuse modern, often fragmented shapes, with ancient Chinese pottery techniques to express colorful narratives.
Anne Ramis The Dancers
Continuing her playful approach to exploring new mediums, artist Anne Ramis’s latest exhibition explores photo manipulation and digital media. Inspired by her love of dance, Ramis works to capture movement without losing the emotional energy tied to physical gesture. Collecting vintage photographs from books and looking to such dancing legends as Isadora Duncan and Tamara Karsavina, Ramis’s mixed media works communicate liveliness over the static pose.
