The “F” Words–Form, Function & Flux a success!

by Deborah Britt in News and Upcoming Events
Here are a few photos from the “F” Word Exhibit, now on display at Lander Art Center through October 26.  Nine members of our POWR (Potters of the Wind Rivers) group are represented.

artists of POWR are presenting a group exhibit of their work to further engage
the public with the ceramic arts, both as a functional and sculptural
medium.  The exhibit title, The “F” Words—Form, Function and Flux, relates
to the ambiguity of our medium, and the frustrations we, as artists, must deal
with as we balance our work and careers on an ever-changing threshold.   Is it fine art, or craft?  The argument, one that has been debated for
many decades, continues, leaving ceramic artists in a constant state of Flux*.


*FLUX:  1. 
Constant change.

2.  A substance mixed with a solid
in order to lower its melting point, used especially to promote vitrification
in glass or ceramic.
