Ian Jewell an artist and educator in his senior year at Old Dominion University currently pursuing a B.F.A. in ceramics combined with a B.A. in art education has recently become a member of the Walls Fine Art gallery located down town Norfolk.
The Walls gallery is located inside the Monticello Arcade at 204 East Plume Street suite 2. Five pieces of Jewell’s ceramic sculpture are currently on display and can be viewed during the gallery’s business hours Monday through Friday 11 am- 4 pm and Saturdays by appointment
Jewell describes his work as “vessels for the imagination” as his intention is to create objects which evoke feelings of possibility and pose questions to the viewer leaving them to create their own conclusions as to how and why these objects have come into existence. These vessels are created in the tradition of wheel thrown pottery but soon evolve into something more as he works spontaneously while embracing disaster and turning mistakes into techniques.
Opening reception will be held Saturday October 4th 6pm-9pm. For more information call gallery director James Corcoran (757) 508-1932 or visit the website at http://www.wallsva.com/
