time and materials: New Work by Mary Barringer

Print

Mary Barringer’s work is visually tactile and handbuilt. Her process of applying multiple slips and glazes to her stoneware pieces is evident in the final product, where the layered surfaces register her efforts. Like the title of the show, her work refers to construction and ceramics’ humble, earthy roots, however her plates, vases, and bowls contain a refined and minimal aesthetic.  

Mary Barringer received a BA in art from Bennington College, apprenticed with Michael Frimkess, and has been a studio artist since 1973, making both sculpture and functional pottery. Her work has been exhibited internationally, most recently at AKAR (Iowa City), the Signature Shop (Atlanta), and at the World Ceramics Expo in Korea. She has taught at numerous art centers and universities including Ohio University, the Boston Museum School, and Penland School of Crafts. In addition to her studio work she has written and lectured on ceramic history, and was named editor of Studio Potter journal in 2003. She lives in Shelburne Falls, MA.

Our newest MFA: Eli Davis!

After successfully passing her oral defense on December 10th, Eli Davis became Bradley’s most recent MFA in Graphic Design. Eli installed her thesis show in the Heuser Art Gallery, and in consisted of all five projects she worked on during her tenure at Bradley. Part of her thesis was the overall exhibit design which gave unity to the five different projects and gave the show cohesion. From everyone at Bradley, Congratulations Eli!

Congratulations Carly!

Carly Morrison graduated this December with her BFA in Ceramics. Her thesis show, Fertile Conflicts was a combination of her linoleum prints and ceramic objects all centered around issues of female identity and biology.

Juried Undergraduate Exhibition

This Exhibition showcased the artwork of 10 students selected by Sylvie Fortin, the Editor of the internationally recognized magazine, Art Papers. Out of the 65 works entered only 14 were selected, so the competition was tough! Congratulations to Mike Morris for his best in show award, to Cory Winkelhake,  Diana Robb, and Tyler Brandon for their merit awards, and to Bill Zilch and Sarah Rebholz for their chair’s purchase awards.

Cradle Oak Press Visiting Artist: Carmon Colangelo

Cradle Oak Visiting Artist
Heuser Art Center Gallery November 4-29, 2008 

Using a variety of printmaking processes including intaglio, lithography, collagraph, monotype, silkscreen, and digital printing, Carmon Colangelo’s works on paper contain layered imagery which echoes the chaos of modern life. His images and materials are dissected, re-arranged, and put back together alluding to the new hybrids, some biological, some technological, some spatial, and some social, which are springing up all around us. Elements of the human form appear repeatedly in these prints, and in every instance these fragments, though familiar to us all, feel alien due to their dislocation and unusual juxtapositions. In a similar way to how the Cubists used Cezanne’s passage technique to understand physical space in new ways, Colangelo’s work is made up of transitions between materials and images that reformulate the spatial experience, the natural world, and the human body.
Carmon Colangelo is the Dean of the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis and holds the E. Desmond Lee Professorship for Community Collaboration in the Arts. With 15 solo shows in the past 10 years and another 100 group exhibitions in the past two decades. Mr. Colangelo has exhibited widely, from Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. to Argentina, Canada, England, Puerto Rico, and Korea. His works are in collections at the National Museum of American Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University.
