If you work in one place long enough, do you become wedded to it? Does the work you make evoke the place or is the place speaking through the work? It’s hard not wonder who is seducing who– which ear is to the ground.
Thirty-six miles north of Reno, Nevada off of Highway 395 is Great Basin Pottery. The location serves many purposes, but at the heart of them is the woodfire kiln. The Anagama kiln was designed and built in 1999/2000 by Paul Herman and Joe Winters using firebricks from Northern California. The kiln is fired twice a year (fall and spring) for 3 days and 3 nights. My March visit coincided with the 33rd firing.
Co-curated by Jared Stanley and Sarah Lillegard, the exhibition will span the Sierra Nevada College campus in the Garage Door Gallery, Tahoe Gallery and Poetry Center. The Plain Sense of Things will be on display for investigations and interactions from Dec. 14, 2015 – Jan. 29, 2016. A curator talk will be held Wed. Jan. 6, 7-9pm and the closing reception will be Thur. Jan. 28, 2016 5-7pm both in the Holman Arts & Media Center.
The MFA-IA Winter Residency will be held January 3-12, 2016. Throughout the residency, we will offer a series of public talks and lectures featuring our new visiting artist faculty plus artists and curators from the region.
