Ephemeral: Interpretations of the Cherry Blossom Opens at Lorton Workhouse


Opening Night Reception for "Ephemeral" at Lorton's Workhouse Arts Center

The National Cherry Blossom Festival started off with a show - at Lorton, VA's McGuire Woods Gallery in the Workhouse Arts Center.
Robert Kincheloe at his installation of glass cherry blossoms. The imagery (made from hot glass) suggests frozen branches with cherry blossoms encased in ice, ready to emerge for the spring.
Curated by Laurel Lukaszewski and Komelia Honja Okim, the show was to express aspects of "fleeting moments and delicate sensibilities". Follows are some photos from the opening night.

CraftWeek Dc - on clay

During the seminar held during this past CraftWeek - the 'Master of the Medium' for Clay - Warren McKenzie was asked about the future of the medium. Warren - one of the pioneers of the American clay-arts movement - said that he had "no fear for the future after seeing the works at the Mount Rainier studios - (Margaret Boozer @ Red Dirt Studio, Novie Trump, Laurel Lukaszewski). "
The ceramic artists were beside themselves in this high praise.
