Clay on the Wall; Ansel Adams: The Museum Set
claySalt Lake Art CenterceramicsMailersphotographers
Towards the end of his life, Adams created a set of 75 images representing what he believed to be his best work. His intention was to create 100 of these sets, but only six were printed at the time of his death. "Ansel Adams: The Museum Set" held in the Main Gallery space. "Clay on the Wall" explores the aesthetic side of the form/function dichotomy that has been a part of ceramic production for centuries. Thirty-two national and international ceramic artists have been invited to submit pieces that hang on the wall. While many of the pieces may reference vessels or platters, hanging them on the wall creates focus on their aesthetic qualities rather than their utilitarian purposes. Exhibition held in the Upper Gallery space.
