CLAY & CONTEXT: National Juried Exhibition
January 15 – February 6, 2008
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — The Indiana State University Art Gallery welcomes Clay & Context, National Juried Exhibition, Jan 15- Feb 6, 2009. A public reception with Juror Sherman Hall, Editor of Ceramics Monthly Magazine, will be held on Friday, Jan 16, 5-7pm. Sherman Hall will give a public lecture followed by an awards ceremony that same evening in the Music Recital Hall, (CPFA) at 5:30pm.
Clay & Context was conceived to draw new attention to clay as a material with fresh significance in contemporary art, while acknowledging the history from which it evolved. The exhibition explores both the functional and non-functional aspects of current ceramic art. The exhibited works not only reflect the personal vocabulary of each of the artists, but the cultural climate in which they were produced.

Hall received his BFA in Ceramics from Ohio State University in 1996 after studies at New York University and Columbus College of Art & Design. Following his undergraduate education, Hall was the sole proprietor of the Sherman Hall Studio from 1996-2003. He has worked with Ceramics Monthly since 1999.
