Utilitarian, sculptural pottery featured in Hodson Gallery exhibit

Thursday, July 7, 2011

FREDERICK, Md.—Utilitarian and sculptural ceramic art capturing fleeting moments in time and space will be exhibited July 8-17 in the Hodson Gallery in Tatem Arts Center at Hood College.

A reception and a gallery talk by the artist is scheduled for July 9 at 5:30 p.m. in the gallery, which is open daily from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m.

“Cycles” showcases the work of Ian Bassett, who uses surface treatments—lines, repetition and textures—enhanced by wood, salt and soda firing to create a sense of fluent movement and energy in his work.

Bassett earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from New Hampshire Institute of Art and has worked as a potter in Connecticut and California. He is pursuing a master of fine arts degree in ceramics at Hood.
