Two ceramic artists exhibit work in two galleries

Monday, July 9, 2012

FREDERICK, Md.—The work of two ceramic artists will be displayed in two exhibits at Hood College from July 20 to Aug. 5.

"A Turn of Phrase," by Sasha Coelho, will be displayed in the Whitaker Gallery in the Whitaker Campus Center. Her sculptures—literal illustrations of commonly used idioms— depict the colorful words and expressions used in daily conversations.

Coelho, who resides in Massachusetts, earned a bachelor of arts degree from Brown University. She is pursuing a graduate certificate in ceramic arts at Hood. A reception for the exhibit will be Aug. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m., with a gallery talk by the artist at 5:30 p.m.

"Heat," on display in the Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center, showcases the creations of Trish Talarco Wilson. Her hand-built and slip-cast sculptures are made from a variety of white stoneware clay bodies. This exhibit is intended to raise safety awareness about hyperthermia in children.

Wilson, who earned a bachelor's degree in art from Bloomsburg University, creates diverse works ranging from functional pottery to one-of-a kind sculptures from her studio in State College, Pa.

A reception for "Heat" will be Aug. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m., with a gallery talk by the artist at 6:15 p.m.
