EastWest Ceramics: Clay Works Exhibition
Clinton, NJ 08809-1303
Featured in the Museum's Main Gallery, this exhibition will showcase the works of 26 artists from Japan, South Korea and the United States. The East & West Ceramics Association was formed more than a dozen years ago by South Korean Professor Gil Hong Han. While a visiting instructor at Long Island University, he traveled around the northeastern U.S. sharing his dream of creating a multinational group of ceramic artists. Soon the dream took wing and within a year, artists from Japan, South Korea, and the United States worked together to create an exhibition in New York City. The artists who comprise the East & West may struggle to understand each other when they speak, but when it comes to working with clay, their ability to communicate is effortless.
