Kent State National Ceramics Invitational

Kent State National Ceramics Invitational Card

The Kent State National Ceramics Invitational was curated by Assistant Professor in Ceramics at the School of Art, Peter Christian Johnson and includes artists Kyle Johns, Shalya Marsh and Sara Parent-Ramos. In a curator’s statement, Johnson stated, “In choosing the participants for this year's invitational, I looked for artists who were innovative in their practice, had a clear perspective, and whose use of ceramic material was thoughtfully linked to the content of their work. Shalya Marsh, Kyle Johns, and Sara Parent-Ramos all make exceptional work that is innovative and confident in its identity. Their artwork has separate conceptual concerns but share common threads in their examination of structure, their use of layering, and the vitality of the objects they make.”

Shift

“Shift” captures the state of in-between: micro-macro, indoor-outdoor, organic-architectural. Intentional shadow, color, and placement create familiar moments imbedded in foreign landscapes that continuously shift from a domesticated space to an outdoor scene. Each artists relies on sculpture and mark-making to manipulate materials such as clay, paint, plastic sheeting, and foam to both stabilize the setting with realistic objects and to skew your perceptions of reality.

CODED: Shalya Marsh and Lars Westby

Presented at the Howard County Center for the Arts, Gallery II, this exhibition highlights two sculptors, Shalya Marsh and Lars Westby, both working in clay with distinct similarities and differences. The exhibit explores themes of coding and ciphers. Marsh's piece, Morse Plurality uses two types of encoding a straight substitution based on the textures applied to each form, and a Morse code created by the dots and dashes of the forms themselves. Cipher 037 represents the alphabet from A-Z plus the punctuation marks period and comma. Challenge yourself to decode Morse Plurality using the Cipher 037 and Morse code.
