Cary Illian Exhibit

Attention Cedar Rapidians! Be sure to check out Clary Illian’s special exhibition preview reception at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art tonight from 5:00-7:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public! If you can’t make it to the reception, swing by this exhibition, which will be available for viewing from August 25, 2012, to February 17, 2013. 
Clary Illian is the author of A Potter's Workbook (University of Iowa Press, 1999). Clary says of her pottery, “What is the heart of the matter in pottery making? To call into being an object and to ask the object to have qualities that evoke in the viewer a sense of rightness, beauty, or vitality is to tinker with the divine. Making pots offers a constant challenge to search for the mysterious underpinnings of the physical world itself.” We hope to see you at the exhibit!
