National invitational of 6” ceramic tiles by 200 artists
Curated by Executive Director, Leigh Taylor Mickelson
As part of Clay Art Center's 60th anniversary series of exhibitions, we are resurrecting an exhibition that some consider to be one of Clay Art Center’s greatest: Transformations 6x6. In 2008 this exhibition featured 597 6”x6” tiles by over 150 artists, and was exhibited at Clay Art Center as part of the All Fired Up county-wide celebration of clay. Our 60th anniversary reiteration of this momentous exhibition, aptly re-titled, REDUX: Transformations 6x6 will feature many of the artists that were in the first exhibit. Leigh Taylor Mickelson, Executive Director, has curated 200 artists to create 6” x 6” ceramic tiles to be hung in a grid in the gallery. The walls of our gallery will be filled with work that has been transformed from three dimensions into two, creating a visual assortment of color and content along with a synchronization of design and purpose. REDUX provides a parameter for artists to think intently on their work and whittle it down to the crux of their conceptual thinking.
