Large as Life: Betty Davenport Ford, Elaine Katzer, Lisa Reinertson
June 14, 2014 through August 31, 2014
Opening Reception June 14th
The American Museum of Ceramic Art is honored to present, Large as Life, an exhibition that includes the work of three female artists whose sculptural work, figures, busts, torsos, and animals, is unified through their similar approaches to clay. Drawing from their individual experiences as working artists, teachers, mothers, visionaries, activists, or simply women, their sculpture and public commissions have explored themes of feminism, the human condition, the environment, portraiture, the ecclesiastical, and the fantastical.
Betty Davenport Ford, Elaine Katzer, and Lisa Reinertson share a fascination of using stylized figurative forms for their investigation of the human condition; their artistic endeavors speak to a spiritual concern for all life and for proclaiming the earth’s bountiful beauty. Ford, Katzer, and Reinertson fashion compelling sculptures that evoke playfulness, offer social commentary or reference spiritual truths.
