This exhibition explores the aesthetics inherent in pattern, repetition, and design-based processes that creatively employ systematic methodologies to achieve unexpected outcomes.

Artists draw inspiration from the aesthetics of opulence, beauty, intricacy, or intimacy; explore repetition or decoration as a symbol of experimentation; and/or reflect on the complexity of simultaneous harmony and conflict within dynamic interplay.

Exhibiting Artists: James Arendt, Marty Arnold, Randi Bachman, Vic Barquin, Anne Bernard-Pattis, Ana Buitrago, Cathleen Cramer, Carolyn Cronin Hughes, Andre Daugavietis, Sherri Denault, Michael Dinges, Victoria Fuller, Jon Green, Pierce Haley, Savannah Jubic, Wendy Kawabata, Millicent Kennedy, Hùng Lê, Jessica Lee, Lisa Maione, David Marshall, Scott Mossman, Joanna Poag, Claire Pope, Amy Reckley, Linda Robinson Gordon, Matthew Thorley, Adrienne Weiss, Carson Whitmore, Maggie Wiebe, Rachel Wittels, Xingyi Zhao

About the Curator: Casey Whittier received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and MFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She is interested in the metaphorical and philosophical power of visual art and the ways in which the ceramic material creates direct connections between the geology of the earth, basic human needs, and complex metaphysical desires. Repetitive processes and systems of reliance are often used as metaphors for interconnectedness.
