FREDERICK, Maryland—A selection of ceramic plates, vases, cups and decorative wall pieces inspired by the adventures of childhood will be on display in Hood College’s Hodson Gallery June 16 through July 2.
The exhibit, “Mudpies and Monsters” by Janet Greer, welcomes viewers into the escapades and imagination of Greer and six of her grandchildren. Her work includes functional pieces and extends to groupings and decorative pieces that use a variety of image transfer and firing techniques to showcase the fluidity and freedom of childhood expression. The drawings of six of her grandchildren, ages 1 to 15, will come alive and remind viewers of the honest expression, feelings, curiosity and vulnerability of the young child that are so important to the development and healthy living of all of us. The primary material will be porcelain clay in electric, wood, soda and Raku firings.
The reception is scheduled for June 17 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. with a gallery talk at 6:15 p.m. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public. The gallery is in the Tatem Arts Center, and it is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Greer will obtain her master’s degree this summer.
