In recognition of the 2017 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Conference in Portland, the Elizabeth Leach Gallery presents an exhibition of contemporary ceramic sculpture curated by Bruce Guenther, independent curator and the former Chief Curator and Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Portland Art Museum. BUILD explores the use of clay in the creation of sculpture based on the radical redefinition of the traditional ceramic vessel by Peter Voulkos in the late 1950s. Voulkos’ work continues to inspire a new generation of contemporary artists influenced by his spirit and methodology such as Sterling Ruby and Jessica Jackson Hutchins who subvert both the situation and materiality of clay in the creation of their work.
