Gallery features work of two graduate ceramic artists

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

FREDERICK, Md.—Two ceramic art exhibits—one depicting a physical and emotional journey and the other featuring photographic transfers onto porcelain dinnerware—will be on display in Hood College’s Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center June 10-19.

A reception, featuring talks by the artists, will be held June 11 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery, which is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

BreAnn Kathman of Boone, Iowa, explores the emotional journey through cancer in an exhibit entitled “Metastatic: From the Inside Out.” Her work illustrates how the disease affects the functions of the physical body as well as the emotional strength of the patient and his or her loved ones.

Kathman earned a bachelor’s degree in art and education at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake Iowa. She is pursuing a master of fine arts degree in ceramic arts at Hood.

Allison Jachowski’s works will be showcased in an exhibit entitled “Memorable Moments.” Her wheel-thrown organically shaped dinnerware serves not only as a frame for the image but also as a symbol of the meandering path life takes.

Jachowski earned a bachelor’s degree in education with a concentration in art from Salisbury University. She is pursuing a graduate certificate in ceramic arts at Hood.
