“Dream Worlds: The Art of Imaginative Realism” (on view November 23, 2016 – March 12, 2017) assembles award-winning artists from around the country who play a pivotal role in the art of cinema, television, set design, 3D animation, gaming, and costume design—pushing the boundaries of contemporary realism through the guise of surrealism. Their creations are now a fundamental component of both the fine art world and the commercial art industry. This exhibition is certain to entertain and educate all ages with a journey through the art of imaginative realism, offering fantastic visions within the past, the unexplored future, and even the unseen present—a journey that may inspire viewers to explore their own creativity and storytelling ability through art. “Dream Worlds” is produced with CMA guest-curator and Canton native, Chris Seaman, an award-winning artist-illustrator.
The flames are released. The heat rises and settles over the pieces in the kiln, freezing them in their current forms. For better or worse, they are now frozen in fire. Not all pieces will survive this process and the artist must choose the piece which, in their eyes, has met perfection.
The Frozen in Fire exhibition (on view November 23, 2016 – March 5, 2017) explores the insight of artists being satisfied with their work. Is the pot just a container to hold things or does it hold ideas? Each vessel is meant to be looked at, appreciated and contemplated. The exhibition features ceramic works by celebrated artists: Jack Earl, Janis Mars Wunderlich, Richard Schneider, Tom Radca, Robert Pulley, Adrian Saxe, Toshiko Takaezu, and others.
There are many different ways in which a vessel can be approached aesthetically –all of which are Frozen in Fire.
