New art show feature Wind River area potters

Sep 22, 2013 - Staff

The show also includes a large installation and collaborative piece that incorporates work from each artist.

The "F Words -- Form, Function, and Flux," a ceramics show by the Potters of the Wind Rivers opened at the Lander Art Center on Friday, Sept. 20, and will be exhibited through Oct. 26.

The exhibiting artists have all created pieces, functional and sculptural, with the parameter that the piece must represent a word with specific meaning to the artist that begins with the letter F.

The viewer will be engaged with all things F, from footsteps, fences, furrows and flambé.

The show also includes a large installation and collaborative piece that incorporates work from each artist.

"The artists of POWR have created a group exhibit with the goal of engaging the public with the ceramic arts, both as a functional and sculptural medium.," an artists statement reads.

"The exhibit title, relates to the ambiguity of our medium, and the frustrations we, as artists, must deal with as we balance our work and careers on an ever-changing threshold. Is it fine art, or craft?

"The argument, one that has been debated for many decades, continues, leaving ceramic artists in a constant state of Flux.

The Lander Art Center is located at 224 Main Street.

Openings are free and open to the public.
