New Work by Cary Esser

Cary Esser, chair of the Kansas City Art Institute ceramics department, recently showcased horizontal tile compositions that “simultaneously suggest organic yet geometric islands or hives” (quoted from the exhibition catalog essay by curator Marcus Cain). The sultry glazes used were mesmerizing, inspiring not only to ceramists but all other artists with her rich, juicy, and illustrious color palette. The exhibition, entitled Evermore: Pattern & Process displayed works by Esser and four other artists: Rachel Hayes, Chris Hyndman, Gerry Trilling, & Linda Wellner. It took place at the Kansas City Jewish Museum located in Overland Park ,Kansas.
