Whitney Forsyth: RE-Formation

Whitney WS

Mandalas as a symbol of wholeness are found in cultures around the world, reflecting the symmetry of natural forms, the cycle of life, and the circle of community.  This large-scale ceramic installation of sculptural mandalas represents the life journey of the artist, who recently returned from a residency at the Watershed Center for Ceramic Art.  This exhibition represents many of the new ideas that evolved in her work as a result of this amazing experience.

Hamon will present a workshop on location lighting with strobes and speedlights for portraiture.

The Living Language of Clay


June 24 – August 30, 2017
Reception: Wednesday, August 23, 5:30 – 7:30pm 

In the 1970s and 1980s Emeritus Professor Ron duBois traveled Asia and Africa to document the traditions of folk and artisanal potters in South Korea, Nigeria, and India. In each culture, techniques and practices were passed down over generations; father to son, mother to daughter, and master to apprentice. Over his long career as a ceramics specialist in the OSU Art Department, Ron duBois strove to both learn this “living language” of clay and to pass it on to the generations of artists whom he taught.

The Living Language of Clay is a celebration of a long and fruitful career; an exhibition that simultaneously showcases the art of Ron duBois, works by the students he taught, and the non-Western pieces collected by duBois in his time overseas.
