    Concentrating on the medium of aluminum mesh and wire Atticus Adams large scale sculptural forms are actually based in his interest in architecture Playing with light and shadow volume and transparency the scale of his work envelops the viewer into a space shaped through hollow form Based on an interest in Henry David Thoreau Adam s work also suggests connections to place and the artist s ability to be attuned to the many layers of an environment In describing his process Adams states I wanted to take materials that I found inherently beautiful metal mesh wire etc and see what I could learn from them By providing an intuitive creative direction of their own I became engaged in the mystery of the creative process and the joy of that experience Adams studied and received several degrees from several institutions including Yale School of Art New Haven CT Rhode Island School of Design Providence RI Tidewater Community College VA Beach VA Harvard University Cambridge MA Regent University VA Beach VA Film Studies 1987 West Virginia University Morgantown WV BS Degree 1985 Exhibitions include Atticus Adams Europ art Gallery Pittsburgh PA 2007 Joyland Mineral Spring Lofts Pawtucket RI 2004 Space and Place

    May 27 2010 to August 12 2010 Andrea Gaydos Landau Control Point With Control Point Andrea Gaydos Landau orchestrated a gallery take over vines broke through the ceiling and erupted from the floor and an accumulated density of linear vines formed an emerging pattern Constructed like a drawing the installation was composed from varying fabrics of different densities They shifted like shadows faint gestures of movement and life Andrea Gaydos Landau s broader studio practice tackles the notion of structure both architectonic and organic decorative and chaotic along with processes that are suggestive of addition division and subtraction By building or compiling with pattern Landau wishes to reveal information of a new order or perhaps to expose the subtle possibility of an alternative cosmology Andrea Gaydos Landau received her BFA in Fiber and Material Studies from The Cleveland Insitute of Art and her MFA from the Cranbook Academy of Art Andrea has shown in several exhibitions outside of school including the First Look exhibition at The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in Peekskill NY featuring graduating emerging artists from across the country She also participated in a group show called Delinquent Systems at Warren Robbins Gallery at University of

    inspired by found objects in a state of decay Delving into an imagined history Hine finds the tactile nature of clay to be ideal for her subject matter and the spontaneous working method allowing the material to guide the organic nature of each form For Hine s installations such as her Growth Deterioration series fossil like forms are composed in a way that responds to the architecture of the space The point of departure for her other object based work stems from the biomorphic qualities of aquatic life often including an intricate use of stains and glazes to elaborate and draw out subtle details of the form Ultimately as Hine states the objective of her work is to discover an innate spirituality that addresses the cycle of life and death Brooke Hine received a B F A from Siena Heights University Adrian MI and an M F A from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia Recent exhibitions include A Show of Hands 2008 MANNA Foundation Philadelphia PA Art of the State 2008 The State Museum of Pennsylvania Harrisburg PA Live With It Premiere Photo West Gallery Philadelphia PA 2008 Extrinsic Gallery 5 Richmond VA 2008 From the Ground Up Fe

    pieces in various materials such as plaster or resin Built on a formal knowledge of human anatomy her level of expertise and understanding of this type of sculptural realism informs her current interest in the anatomy of animals Like Jackson s previous installations her work for While You Were Out was based on her focus on the anthropomorphism of the animal sculptures she creates As installations individual sculptures were placed in human settings often with typical domestic furnishings and decorative objects thus suggesting the human characteristics of each sculpture and their interaction with each other in personal terms creating as Jackson states a familiarity with an oddness that makes it compelling Jackson received a BFA from Moore College of Art and Design Philadelphia Jackson has shown extensively in Philadelphia most recently in venues such as Moore College of Art the Icebox at the Crane Arts Building Mew Gallery and Kelly Weber Fine Art 201 Gallery and outside of Philadelphia at venues such as Maryland Art Place in Baltimore Maryland the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and at Uppercase Gallery in Alberta Canada Her work is also shown at Riverbank Arts in Stockton NJ Jackson was selected as

    arts and crafts movement demonized industry strongly questioning the integrity of designers who did not produce their own work Despite the influence of the Bauhaus ideal in the U S industrial design was considered the realm of businessmen and stylists rather than artists By the postwar period most academic ceramics programs were deeply committed to the crafts movement s individualist ethos As a result of this ideological divide the education of potters and designers continues to be conducted in radically different contexts Potters and industrial designers who share a great many artistic practical and social concerns will almost never cross paths in their professional lives Yet the line between industrial and studio production has never been all that clearly drawn and in recent years it has become increasingly blurred The current generation of studio potters is less bound by ideology than their predecessors and techniques like slip casting and airbrushing have long been basic to many potters studio practice Rapid developments in prototyping technology and small batch production along with a tremendous expansion of the market for design and the increasing success of niche marketing have created surprising new opportunities for making and selling objects of all kinds This exhibition

    providing a self reflexivity to their practice and considering the term as an active subject to be questioned in innovative ways Scholars have argued that the roots of this climate may be found in the 1970s when higher level art educators began to teach skills to their students from a wide range of materials and techniques The results of this attitude are widely evident in the disappearance of medium specific crafts courses in higher educational institutions The intent of this exhibition was to engage in this dialogue by providing alternative vantage points in which to consider the state of craft State of the Union was not meant to be a comprehensive survey of each of what encompasses craft production today but a focus on the post disciplinary practices being used by emerging artists who are interested in questioning the fundamental assumptions of its traditional perimeters Given the historically validated hierarchy between crafts and the fine arts that has been explored exhaustively by countless theorists a new generation of artists within the craft discipline is using their work to consider ways in which craft can maintain its identity outside its relationship to the fine arts Considered through the use of material and skill self reflexivity of the very position of craft and its reception by the viewer becomes the subject of the work itself Some artists included in the exhibition explored craft processes and materials borrowing from one or more techniques and media thus questioning the traditional categories of craft as textiles clay glass wood and metal Others reconsidered the traditional function or use value of craft referencing its history as an object to be used or worn thus subverting its original purposefulness Yet others questioned its ties to the decorative and the roots of craft aesthetic in Western history Rather
