ART EXHIBITION:

Earth, Sky, Time, Light, Space: The Ceramic Art of Wayne Higby

January 17 -- February 17, 2017

The Art Gallery at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, Art Building

ARTIST STATEMENT:

Earth, sky, time, light, space: my work is a meditation on the relationship between mind and matter.

EXHIBITION SUMMARY:

The exhibition Earth, Sky, Time, Light, Space: The Ceramic Art of Wayne Higby highlights the diverse work by esteemed and internationally-recognized contemporary ceramics artist Wayne Higby. Inspired by the American landscape, Higby has created innovative vessels, sculpture, and architectural installations. Higby has been acclaimed as a living legend and visionary of the American Crafts Movement by the American Craft Museum. He is the Intersections Visiting Artist at the Department of Art + Art History, UH Mānoa, for spring 2017.

Higby will be in Honolulu to give his lecture, Light Falling on Grass, which was previously presented to a sold-out crowd at George Washington University. He will discuss and explore how his innovative works use landscape imagery as a focal point for contemplation and reflection.

The exhibition is being held in partnership with Hawai‘i Craftsmen, in celebration of its 50th anniversary.
