Baltimore Clayworks presents

Spoon It! Fork It! Cut It Up !

Baltimore, Maryland—February 7th, 2009—Baltimore Clayworks hosts the exhibition Spoon It! Fork It! Cut It Up !, curated by Gail M. Brown, a Curator of Contemporary Craft, will feature over 90 artists. This exhibition runs April 25-May 30th, 2009 with an opening reception on Saturday, April 25th, from 6 to 8 pm. Admission is free.

“An exhibition of DOMESTIC TOOLS: chop sticks, forks, knives, ladles, picks, pincers, prongs, scoops, shovels, spades, spoons, spreaders, stirrers, tongs, and/or what you will, in clay.

Some will be functional pieces, others may serve as forms for personal narrative. Some pieces will directly convey the essence of the task, other forms will further elaborate with unique and meaningful design, style and material focus connoting layered messages beyond the intended function, others will reference an intended ritual, a setting and an elaborate, descriptive back story.”

High resolution images will be available for publication; please contact Mary Cloonan to have images e-mailed or sent to you.
