Don Viehman in Contemporary Enameling show
January 15 - March 8
Featuring work by both established and emerging enamelists, Place as Landscape / Place as Concept brings together enamel arts that explore place from an American perspective. In the United States, where the sheer size of the country has created an incredible diversity, concepts of place are intimately connected to identity and culture. The works in this exhibition use a range of traditional and experimental enameling techniques to explore place not just as scenery but as a way of understanding who we are. By turns complex, conflicted, melancholy, and beautiful, these images and objects show us our country as well as ourselves.
This exhibition expands upon the American showcase presented at BLAZE: International Contemporary Enamel Exhibition at the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute in Taipei (2018).
