“Cast a light onto an object and a shadow is born. They are revealed in the physical world as well as the spiritual one. What is lurking in those shadows is made known through the imagination.”

This Challenge was open to all artists, working in any medium, who work/reside in eastern Massachusetts. This show is in the lower gallery at the Dedham Community Theatre at 580 High Street, Dedham, MA. http://www.dedhamcommunitytheatre.com Opening Reception: Thursday May 7, 6pm to 8pm Exhibition Dates: May 1, 2015 to June 30, 2015.

I responded to this theme in ceramics and here are the pieces that are included in this exhibit amongst photography, paintings and fiber works of art.

Inspired by the work of Gustavo Perez, this sculpture began on the wheel as a thrown cylinder and was then altered, rolled, pushed, pulled and cut to create spaces for shadows to be cast.  The interior has been painted with a black glossy glaze to further separate the spaces of interior and exterior.

All work is for sale through the Dedham Square Artist Guild gallery.
