Indeed. Please count me in as one who will contribute a piece as well as
one who wants to know more about how we can organize this event
and offer my help.

We as artists react to the events around us on a daily basis. I
truly believe that is one of the functions of art. It provides a
personal exhaust for feelings and ideas as well as a way to
communicate our feelings to the larger community.

If we can agree that this is at least one aspect of art:

I propose an exhibition of works based on our personal reaction to
the events of the past few days.

Like all of us I have been personally numbed, but I am coming out
of it and looking for my personal expression of fear, anger, disbelief
and hope for the future of civilization.

What do you say? Can we put this conversation into clay?

Lowell, this is an excellent idea. We would need
to find a place for such an exhibition, and/or
make a "virtual" show on a website. I expect
either or both can be done.

Let us pursue this. There would likely be
many who would wish to participate. I will.

I am in with you on this Lowel. If we can maybe put an exhibition together
and donate the money towards the restoration and healing of this terrorized
people.
Please let me know if I can help in any way.

Marcia Selsor on thu 13 sep 01


I think this is a great idea. Even if we just make the pieces. If have
been visualizing something and need to do something. All this has got
me sleepless, depressed, anxious, angry, numbed, etc.

Wonderful idea for an exhibition, Lowell.
Yesterday I was so moved by my brother's e-mail about NYC being his "home",
that I went to the studio and make one of my slab houses. This house will
endure 36+ hours of flame and horrific atmosphere, but will become a firm,
strong symbol of my brother's dwelling. This clay house is made with love
and will be seasoned with ash, as is my brother's home.

Yes Lowell, I think it can be done given some time. I personally wouldn't
want to make some sort of knee jerk statement about what's happened without
some time for reflection. I'm not suggesting that a quick response is what
you've asked for. It's going to take a while for all to process this
emotional overload.

I like the idea that the proceeds would go for restoration or to
families of victims. Craig and I just learned last night that a very
dear friend of ours was on a business trip to New York and in the WTC.
He is missing.

I will participate.

I wonder if we could get the ceramics department of George Washington U. or
the Corcoran, both here in DC, to sponsor such an exhibit?

Lowell,

If you do this, if we do this, I will personally see that the exhibition
has a venue here in SC. I suspect that with all of us on clayart who
have access to gallery spaces, an exhibition like that could travel the
US and the world for years to come. I say yes, let's do it.

We as artists react to the events around us on a daily basis. I
truly believe that is one of the functions of art. It provides a
personal exhaust for feelings and ideas as well as a way to
communicate our feelings to the larger community.

If we can agree that this is at least one aspect of art:

I propose an exhibition of works based on our personal reaction to
the events of the past few days.

Like all of us I have been personally numbed, but I am coming out
of it and looking for my personal expression of fear, anger, disbelief
and hope for the future of civilization.

What do you say? Can we put this conversation into clay?

Craig makes a good observation. Give people time to think. The quality
and impacts will be better. Provide an open invitation and we'll get
international participation. I suggest that the event be held, begin or
culminate during the week of the tragedy's anniversary.... if that's not too
soon.

This could be a major organizational undertaking... if we want it to be.
So we'll need organization and coordination. Can ClayArt, the Potters,
Council, Ceramics Monthly or the American Ceramics Society do this
individually or collectively? Would they be willing to? Ally the activity
with a university or a national, non-profit, arts organization.

There will be a memorial to the tragedy. I'd suggest that we jury the
contributions. Donate the best pieces to the memorial for inclusion.
Perhaps auction the rest to cover costs of the exhibition and contribute the
remainder of the proceedings to the memorial or a victims' relief fund.

Granted, but since the object of the exercise is to raise money, how

actually it's not so hard.

there is an established tradition of major charity web sites using basic
ecommerce technology to get people to make a credit card donation on-line.
offer that and something like Pay Pal, negotiate a special commission rate
with the banks... it could be done. to rally get it going it helps to have
a sponsor who will match for , $ for $ as an incentive. I guess you do
this by getting them to agree to a maximum sum, then managing the cash flow
until it runs out - if you don't get enough, they get to make a generous
donation themselves at the end.

Lowell,

I would be proud to join your exhibition. It would give me a chance to say
what I need to say. Or say a little of what I want to say. The feelings
are so great and jumbled, so I , like others, will need time. I am also
making Remembrance Receptacles as a personal approach to the event. Thank
You.
