Ceramics Student HARUKA TAKEMOTO in National Juried Exhibition
Old Dominion University Ceramics Program student HARUKA TAKEMOTO recently was juried into CLAY & CONTEXT: NATIONAL JURIED EXHIBITION at Indiana University.
Clay & Context looks to draw new attention to clay as material with fresh significance in contemporary studio practices, while acknowledging the historical foundation from which it evolved. Whether the media takes on a utilitarian or non-functional form, the playing field has never been so level. We encourage submissions to address the vast scope of ceramic art being created in today’s context in hopes of an exhibition of exemplary works reflecting the personal vocabulary of the individual artists creating in our present cultural climate.
The Juror was SHERMAN HALL editor of CERAMICS MONTHLY. The exhibition will be from JANUARY 15 – FEBRUARY 6, 2009 HARUKA’s BFA Exhibition is now on display at Borjo Coffeehouse in the ODU Village on Monarch Way.
