Out of Necessity at The Visual Arts Center of Richmond

August 30 – October 13, 2013
Curated by Jason Hackett

The premise of this exhibition explores clay as a contemporary art material strongly connected to its history and traditions.  Recognizing the responsibility art has to question and reflect culture, Hackett presents a selection of work by artists who investigate overlapping themes of ceramics, function, art, and life.  This exhibition honors six artists: Blair Clemo, Sin-Ying Ho, Mathew McConnell, Adam Shiverdecker, Linda Sikora, and Stan Welsh.
