June 20: Whitaker Gallery hosts raku, low-fired ceramic exhibit

Friday, June 20, 2014

FREDERICK, Md.—An exhibit of black-and-white ceramic forms with expressive sculpted relief surfaces will be on display July 5-19 in the Whitaker Campus Center Gallery at Hood College.

The exhibit, Me, Myself and I and Maybe You, showcases the work of Bobbie McMillan of Melbourne, Fla. The opening reception will be July 12 from 5 to 7 p.m., with an artist's talk at 5:30 p.m. in the gallery. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Much of McMillan's wheel-thrown and pinched forms depict the many emotions of life and the relationship she has with herself and with others. Her use of low-fire and raku processes emphasizes the complex imagery sculpted in low relief on the surface of each vessel.

McMillan, who earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in ceramic arts from The University of Houston, is pursuing a master of arts in ceramic arts at Hood. She is a ceramic instructor at Eastern Florida State College and Foosaner Art Museum at Florida Institute of Technology. Her work has been seen in numerous shows and gallery exhibitions throughout the United States.
