20th Century American Ceramics at Bonsack Gallery
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - "20th Century American Ceramics," featuring pieces donated to John Burroughs School's
Permanent Collection of Fine Art by the Matthew and Jane Newman Family in honor of Andrew R. Newman '87, will be on display in the Bonsack Gallerythrough Tuesday, October 10.
The 19 pieces in the show represent a paradigm shift in the aesthetics of ceramics. "The 20th century was a pivotal time for the ceramic arts," according to ceramist Michael Gesiakowski, who teaches at John Burroughs School.
"Starting early with the Arts & Craft movement, artists freed themselves from the classical constraints of form and function," said Gesiakowski. "They
started experimenting with production methods, firing techniques, and non-traditional forms. By the middle of the century, individual expression was driving artist's works and ceramists embraced the vessel as object. The artists in this collection are an example of those who moved ceramics toward the realm of fine art. While these works are still rooted in the ideas of craft, they
are imbued with meaning beyond pure function."
The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School, 755 South Price Road, St. Louis, MO, 63124. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays. The exhibit is free to the public. For more information, call 314-993-4045.
