BIO: CLAY BODIES
CASTLE GALLERY’S 2008-09 SEASON
NEW ROCHELLE, NY, August
13, 2008 -- The Castle Gallery, housed in historic Leland Castle on The
College of New Rochelle’s Main Campus, will open its 2008-09 season
with Beyond Bio: Clay Bodies,
an exhibit of clay works presented in
conjunction with the Clay Art Center’s All Fired Up: A Celebration of
Clay in Westchester County.
The exhibit will open on
September 7 and run through November 9, 2008. An opening
reception will be held on Sunday, September 14, 2008 from 2 – 4 p.m.
Curated by Castle Gallery
Director Katrina Rhein, Beyond Bio
will feature artists who utilize
ceramic elements in their exploration of the human form on both a
physical and psychological level and to highlight biomedical issues
visually and conceptually. The works range from the use of the human
form in its entirety, manipulated to convey abject beauty, to isolated,
fragmented elements of the human form, (indicating life beyond our
daily comprehension -- the body as a macrocosm) to playful biomorphic
forms seemingly at work.
Exhibiting artists are Jason Briggs, Scott
Chamberlin, Lauren Levine Shafer, Judy Moonelis,
Michelle Martin, Helen Otterson, Grace Powers Fraioli, Lauren Sandler,
Jacqueline Sandro and
