Baltimore, Maryland -August 13, 2013 -Baltimore Clayworks is proud to be presenting The Potent Object juried by Richard Cleaver. Richard Cleaver received a B.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a M.A. from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee and has been carving figures out of clay for over thirty years. Cleaver has exhibited across the nation and his work is in collections such as the Baltimore Museum of Art, Crocker Art Museum, George and Dorothy Saxe Collection at the DeYoung Museum, Diane and Sandy Besser Collection, and the Delaware Art Museum. The Potent Object showcases the power of small-scale sculptural works. Featured artworks are no larger than 12 inches in any direction, but possess a much larger presence. Composed mainly of ceramic, with the possibility of some mixed media additions, these objects prove that something doesn't have to be huge to be monumental. This exhibition runs August 17- September 28, 2013 with an opening reception on Saturday, August 17, from 6 to 8 pm. Admission is free.
