DESCRIPTION

Patricia Sannit, a Phoenix-based artist whose vessels are influenced by cultures worldwide, is literally breaking new ground for her installation Citadel -- with the assistance of scores of community volunteers. Citadel is a 10-foot diameter structure inspired by an Iraqi archeological site called the Citadel at Erbil, in the Kurdish region. Sannit’s new direction explores the layering of time and history through the medium of clay.

This exhibition is funded by an Artist Project grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, by the Joseph Dung Ceramics Initiative and by members of CLA.
