Warren Mather ceramics at Arnold Arboretum
Warren Mather exhibit, Tree Rings: Ceramic Panoramas by Warren Mather, that just began at Arnold Arboretum in Boston. I first saw his work at the Fuller Craft Museum, one of my favorite museums in the area. I thought his work was really great so I was excited to see he has another exhibit nearby. The exhibit is up in the Hunnewell Building Lecture Hall until April 29, and there is a free artist lecture on April 12. The event page sums up his work well, "Artist Warren Mather, a member of the faculty at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, makes circular panoramas, presenting a simultaneous view of what is in front at the same time as what is behind. In this exhibit, he creates inverse panoramas of the bark of various trees. These images are formed into a ring and transferred to silk-screens, printed in ceramic pigments on clay, then fired and glazed." Since the spring weather has been beautiful you may as well get out for a walk in the Arboretum and check out this clay artist while you're at it.
