FREDERICK, Maryland—An exhibition of ceramic canteens that depict war images to show the survival and emotion of war in the mind, heart and soul will be on display in Hood College’s Whitaker Campus Center Gallery June 23 through July 9.
In Ryan McGlone’s “Surviving Fire” exhibit, he wants to show that, even though war is brutal and dangerous, it is also emotional and physical, and everyone carries water to survive.
An art teacher at the Regional Institute for Children and Adolescents (RICA), McGlone instructs emotional disabled children to reach their fullest potential by creating works of art using their imaginations and building confidence. His earlier work was playful and whimsical, referring back to his childhood and his imagination. In current work, he has taken a more serious and emotional perspective.
McGlone earned a bachelor’s degree in art education from Radford University in Virginia and is currently working toward his master’s degree in ceramic arts at Hood College.
The Whitaker Gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. A reception will be held June 24 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.
