Magic Realism: Exploring Material Illusions

Center for Art in Wood

141 North 3rd Street Philadelphia PA 19106
  • Wednesday March 31st 2010 at 12:00am to Saturday July 17th 2010 at 12:00am

Ruth Borgenicht, Jim Butler, John Cederquist, Tom Eckert, Susan Glasgow, Michelle Holzapfel, Ron Isaacs, Janel Jacobson, Ani Kasten, Greg Nangle, Randall Rosenthal, Dan Saal, Lincoln Seitzman, Eric Serritella, Richard Shaw, Brent Skidmore, Paul Stankard, David Wiseman and Xuti. This exhibition brings together 19 artists who use materials including wood, clay, leather and glass to create provocative illusions of other materials. Each artist combines a multitude of small truthful details into realities that are simultaneously believable and strange — impossible and valid. The eye dazzling magic is explored in representations of the artifacts of daily life, objects simultaneously mundane and filled with explicit and hidden meanings. Curated by Robin Rice. This show is one of over 90 exhibitions that are part of INDEPENDENCE: The 44th Annual NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) conference taking place in Philadelphia from March 31 – April 3, 2010 hosted by The Clay Studio.
