The Durham Art Guild presents “100+ Years of Earth and Fire: A
Retrospective of Four Women Working in Clay” featuring works by Cynthia Aldrich, Natalie Boorman, Carmen Elliott and Marilyn Palsha.
Aldrich, Boorman, Elliott and Palsha are ceramic artists who have been working with clay collectively for over 170 years! Our commonality is that we have all worked predominately as hand-builders creating sculptural ceramic pieces that hold a reverence for the Earth, intuition and myth. We have, however, approached our art work in different ways and along different creative paths. The goal of our exhibition is to present the development of each artist’s work over our extensive careers and to highlight our diverse choices in techniques, firing methods and designs.
This exhibition is on view in SunTrust Gallery from October 18 – December 7, 2019.
Join us for public receptions with the artists on October 18 and November 15 from 6-8pm.
