Hodson Gallery features two capstone exhibits

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

FREDERICK, Md.—The work of two ceramic artists will be on display in the Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center at Hood College from June 7 to June 23.

A reception for both exhibits, and gallery talks by the artists will be June 8 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the gallery, which is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Halcyon showcases the works of Deirdre Tighe of Sykesville, Md. Her ceramic vessels are inspired by nature; historical pottery, especially the pottery works of Jamon, Mayan and Greek cultures; Eastern aesthetics, particularly the brightly colored and ornamental styles found in India, Thailand and Indonesia; and yoga practice.

Clay paintings comprise local artist Sara Knox's exhibit, Fractured Paintings. Her work, which embraces pottery's natural tendency to break, features broken slabs and shards of clay that she uses to compose a landscape or waterscape to reflect a historical event or to tell a story.
