New Exhibition at Minnesota Center for Book Arts Combines Ceramics with Storytelling

Minnesota Center for Book Arts (MCBA) presents Chronicled in Clay: Ceramics and the Art of the Story, an exhibition that brings together ceramics and contemporary book arts. Chronicled in Clay is presented in conjunction with Claytopia, the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts’ (NCECA) 53rd Annual Conference, which explores “the human imagination as a vehicle of restless yearning for a more livable, just, and meaningful world.”

Chronicled in Clay: Ceramics and the Art of the Story examines how contemporary artists express narratives in clay through text, imagery, multiples, and sequence. The jurors, Tetsuya Yamada (artist and faculty at the University of Minnesota), Monica Edwards Larson (MCBA Board member and artist / proprietress of Sister Black Press), and Torey Erin (MCBA Exhibitions and Artist Programs Manager), have composed an exhibition that provokes new perspectives and challenges traditional ideas of narrative and linear storytelling through clay form, including notebook tablets, book vessels, a wall installation of wave-like ceramic pages, and more. 

Participating artists include: 

Eileen Cohen, Minneapolis, MN
Corie J. Cole, Colorado Springs, CO
Paula McCartney, Minneapolis, MN
Stefana McClure, Newburgh, NY
Teri Power, Amery, WI
Derek Prescott, Columbia Heights, MN
Nicole Roberts Hoiland, Saint Paul, MN
Jennifer Rose Wolken, Springfield, MO
Molly Streiff, Missoula, MT
.

The exhibition will be on view and open to the public February 8 through April 28 in MCBA’s Main Gallery, with an opening reception on Friday, March 28, 6-9pm.

Minnesota Center for Book Arts (MCBA) is a visual arts nonprofit organization that supports creative expression through traditional and contemporary book arts, including papermaking, bookbinding, and letterpress printing. MCBA’s philosophy and artistic vision challenges its artist community to think beyond the traditional notion of “book.” Today, books can be bound and unbound, fabricated into sculptures, interpreted as metaphor, experienced as installation or performance, and interacted with virtually. What unites this varied work is a focus on the interdisciplinary expression of narrative. To learn more, visit our website.
