Mythology Meets Archetype is curated by Heather Nameth Bren, NCC exhibition committee member, professor, and ceramic artist. It will feature the artworks of Christie Brown (London, UK), Philip Eglin (London, UK), Michelle Erickson (Yorktown, VA), Bonnie Marie Smith (Kingston, NY), and Vipoo Srivilasa (Melbourne, AU). The works in the exhibition will respond to personal, cultural, and religious myths that have grown out of the desire to know (or the posture to know) the unknowable. Symbols of the god figure, the mother figure, the self, and the demon have been used to describe ancient and
contemporary narratives. This archetypal cast of characters is employed as agents of one’s personal or cultural identity, spiritual devotion, and even power to control the masses.
Opening Reception: Friday, March 14, 6?–?8 pm
Vipoo Srivilasa will be in residence at Northern Clay Center prior to the exhibition working with community members on a collaborative project.
