hank murrow's show

Hank Murrow on wed 15 jan 03

Sorry to be tardy in bringing this to Clayart's attention, but Hank
Murrow has a solo show up in the gallery at Umpqua Community College
through January. In addition to 72 pieces of pottery spanning 20 years
time, there is a series (12) of large wall plaques called "Migrations
of the Heart", which began as a study of romantic relations using the
migration of geese and cranes as the central metaphor. This occasion of
this show encouraged me to shift this study from pots to larger wall
plaques and their more extensive field. they read from left to right in
the gallery setting, and I hope viewers will find themselves somewhere
within the series. I am looking forward to the next 80 or so, as the
metaphor is a deep one. In addition, I will give a slide talk at the
gallery Monday evening the 20th at 7pm, and follow it with a workshop
in soft faceting and displacement trimming the next day (21st) upstairs
in the pottery at the College.

Come by if you are in the area, I'd love to see a Clayarter or two.

Cheers, Hank in Eugene
ps: I will try to get the series up on my website soon.
