Lauren Mabry: Passages
Lauren Mabry, alumni of KCAI ceramics and recipient of an MFA from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, was in town the weekend of the 6th for her show opening at the Belger Crane Yard Gallery entitled “Passages.” Currently working and living in Philadelphia, PA, as a long term resident artist at The Clay Studio, her work is very process oriented. The cylindrical and curved forms she creates act as canvases for her abstract glaze paintings. Her glazes flow and undulate in a seductive dance across the forms, while traces of the processes provide a tension between beauty and grime. She lectured here at KCAI on the 6th, passing on her experiences with current KCAI ceramics majors. That evening her show opened with an excellent turnout, and even more excellent work. Thank you Lauren!
