Three Exhibitions
Aug 31 through Sept 18, 10 am - 5 pm daily
OCAF Art Center, 1902 Building, 34 School Street, Watkinsville, GA 30677

Free admission and open to the general public

Main Gallery – “Participating Potters:2013” - This annual exhibit, featuring the best works of each of the 50 Georgia potters and a very special piece selected from their private collections; this annual exhibit is considered by many as the finest display of contemporary pottery in the southeast.

Members Gallery – “Made in Japan” - This exhibition, curated by Rick Berman, will include approximately 35 pots from kilns in Japan. Living National Treasures Shoji Hamada and Tatsuzo Shimaoka will be shown. Kumano Kuroemon and several other potters from Echizen, examples from the kilns of Shino and Oribe, Bizen, Tamba, Onda, and many other pots from anonymous Japanese potters from private and museum collections will be included. Several large photographs of Japanese potters, kilns, pots, Zen Gardens, and a very thorough explanation of the Mingei Tradition will be shown on the walls of the gallery. Berman will give a Gallery Talk on this significant exhibit on Friday evening, August 30, starting at 7:00 p.m. in the Members Gallery.

Hall Gallery – “Rick Berman – Italian Influences” – An exhibit of clay art by potter Rick Berman. “Fortunately I was given the opportunity to teach ceramics for the University of Georgia’s Crotona studies abroad program in the spring of 2013. While living in Crotona, Italy and traveling to Rome, Florence, Lucca, Venice, Assisi and several other Italian cities I saw literally thousands of pieces of art by some of the greatest masters in the history of the world. I noticed that a common denominator used in almost every painting and marble or wood sculpture was the use of draped fabric. To me the greatest example of this common thread was the incredible use of this technique in Michelangelo’s pietà. I was so amazed by this illusion created in marble that I felt compelled to try it in clay. In my forty five years of clay work I have never been so pleased with the forms, and the seemingly endless possibilities of variations on a theme. Ironically I made a few of these forms as a graduate student in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, University of Georgia in 1973.”
