Displace

Featuring works by Lisa Nappa & Chris Tyllia with select pieces from ceramic artists Linda Casbon, Linda Swanson, and Sandra Trujillo.

Displace is an exhibition focused on water as a resource, a material and a metaphor.  Water is change, movement, and flux.   Water is often an overlooked material in the ceramic process.  It gives clay many of its seductive and sensual qualities that so many ceramic artists hold dear.  It allows for clay’s responsiveness to immediate touch, manipulation, and change.  Once water is gone, the clay is frozen in time, it becomes an immutable history and tradition from which to study and evolve.  Water is the elusive and mercurial aspect of ceramics that allows for the future of the medium to remain in flux.
