Ruskin Gallery at Working Men’s College is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition by ceramicists, including Sheila Armstrong, Wendy Arnot, Marcella Mameli Badi, Richard Bates, Beata Bechtold, Elizabeth Bordass, Antonia Brown, Pisched Hughes, Uta Hodgeson, Lesley John, Mirian Mozower, Margret Rich, Karne Sussman, Hilke Tiedmeann, Tony Ryle, Oka Ward and Nicola Web.
As the title of the show suggests, the exhibition will be changing weekly to expose different artists and their approaches to the medium of ceramics. In so doing, the collections of works also aim to pronounce the fleeting nature of exhibitions, contrasted by the solidity of some of the bigger ceramic pieces. Everything is ephemeral.
An artist once commented that all works of art should be lived with, experienced with for a long time to realise the beauty of it – yet on the other hand there is still a great aesthetic in the short moments of pleasure that is strengthened by its elegiac quality, which is best captured by ceramic objects.
