Art opening reception: Roughneck: A Juried ClayHouston Exhibition
Roughneck: A Juried ClayHouston Exhibition features a variety of ceramic works by members of the local artist guild, ClayHouston. The show is one of many ceramic exhibits in the area coinciding with the National Council on Education for Ceramic Arts (NCECA) 47th Annual Conference, taking place in Houston next spring, and the 2013 NCECA Biennial exhibition, also opening Jan. 25 at HCCC.
Demonstrating fortitude of technical skill, Roughneck displays the high concentration of talent in the Southeast Texas area and showcases a range of ceramic processes. Through sculptural installations and functional tableware highlighting complex glazing techniques, each piece demonstrates a level of experimentation that yields surprising and eye-catching compositions and forms.
