A Pottery Slam Success

Yes, you read that right!

Last Thursday, The Art League was privileged to host a Pottery Slam coinciding with the exhibition Pottery on the Hill.

What’s a pottery slam?

Mark, Dan and Sam explain their techniques and teach a group of over 70 eager learners at the Pottery Slam!

Posted by Pottery On The Hill on Thursday, October 29, 2015

Artists Dan Finnegan, Mark Shapiro, Sam Taylor, and our own Blair Meerfeld demonstrated on the wheel while everyone had some refreshments and asked questions. It was standing room only in the pottery studio!

Thanks to everyone who came out — we had a great time! Read more about Pottery on the Hill here.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
