Auburn Sculptor Earns Spot in a National Exhibit
Rocklin, CA- Sierra College congratulates local sculptor and staffer, Anthony Maki Gill for earning a place in a Nationally Juried Ceramic Exhibition in Baltimore Maryland. His work, titled "H1N1" is on display in Artifacts from the Inferno: Contemporary Wood-fired Ceramics, juried by Jack Troy and open from October 5 through November 9, 2013.
Employed at Sierra College for the last 16 years, Anthony Maki-Gill provides technical support for the Applied Art and Design and Fine Arts programs. He is the co-founder of the ARTS building in Auburn and the Auburn Art Walk. He has an art studio in Auburn, where he works and teaches pottery classes.
Anthony is a nationally recognized sculptor. His work has been included in the 4th Contemporary Clay Biennial 2012, presented by the Western Colorado Center For The Arts, the prestigious "Kingsley Exhibition" at the Sacramento Crocker Art Museum, Lincoln "Feats of Clay" and San Angelo Museum International Biennial Ceramics Exhibition. His public work can be seen at the Granite Bay Library, the Auburn Historic Court House museum and Roseville Fat's restaurant.
Juror, Jack Troy is a world renowned potter, teacher and writer, from Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, where he taught at Juniata College for 39 years, and has taught more than 220 workshops in the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Great Britain and other countries.
Juror's statement: It wasn't so long ago that the term, "wood-fired ceramics" conjured up some fairly predictable images of pots and sculpture, but in the past half-decade the aesthetic spectrum of this genre has expanded as the second generation of practitioners builds experimental kilns, investigates various woods, clays, firing protocols, and personal visions. While many of us get better at what we already know to do, younger wood firers are working out moves of their own, sometimes in midair after bouncing off traditional diving boards. This exhibition will showcase the persistent exploration of forms and surfaces, as wood-firing continues to attract a widening clan of participants and connoisseurs.
