“Slip Slab Coil Pinch Press Throw ”
November 29th 2013 – January 25th 2014
NE Portland, OR (November 1, 2013) Eutectic Gallery presents an exhibition and survey of contemporary American artists working in clay: “Slip Slab Coil Pinch Press Throw”,
featuring the work of over 24 different artists from around the country including Kelly Garrett Rathbone, Brad Mildrexler, John George Larson, Richard Brandt, Brad McLemore, Baba Wague Diakite, Ehren Tool, Thomas Orr, Daniel Donovan & Jesse Albrecht.
“Slip Slab Coil Pinch Press Throw” represents the essential methods of construction for most ceramic forms. With these processes, or combinations of them, anything can be made from clay. Each of the artists explores a different and distinct approach to the construction and surface treatment of their artwork, providing a compelling presentation about the process of “clay-making” that will appeal to artists, collectors and gift-givers alike.
Brett Binford, co-founder of both Eutectic Gallery and Mudshark Studios explains:
“While it might seem like a really narrow focus for a gallery, just showing ceramics, this show is a good example of the broad range of work we can exhibit, and the quality of the artists we have making work, a lot of them are right here in Portland, in some ways Portland is a hub for ceramics, we hope to share that with the greater community.”
In just ten months, Eutectic Gallery has shown the work of 28 ceramic artists, craftsmen and designers. “Slip Slab Coil Pinch Press Throw” is a compendium of recent works from these artists featured during Eutectic Gallery’s inaugural year. Portland’s only fine art gallery dedicated to contemporary ceramics, Eutectic Gallery produces six shows a year, and features a retail shop of studio potters, craftsmen and designers, featuring both functional and sculptural works.
Some of Oregon’s most engaging artists will also be represented in the show, with new work from Chris Baskin, Kristy Lombard, Victoria Christen, Careen Stoll, Perc by Frank Chimero, Portland Growler Company, Chris Pate, Jennifer Love, Ken Pincus, Brian R. Jones, Kurt Van Vlack, Courtney Murphy, Kelsey Nelson, Puji and Jensen & Marineau.
The Eutectic Gallery will host a reception for beginning at 6pm on December 6, 2013 as a part of the First Friday inner eastside Gallery Crawl and will feature refreshments, small bites and an opportunity to meet the artists.
Open Thursday through Sunday, and by appointment, the exhibition “Slip Slab Coil Pinch Press Throw” will be displayed at the Eutectic Gallery through January 25, 2915
