2017 Alabama Clay Conference Professor and Student Exhibition

Space One Eleven presents the Professor and Student Exhibition during the 2017 Alabama Clay Conference featuring pairings of artwork made by ceramic faculty from Alabama colleges and universities, and work from their students.  The gallery exhibition shows the wide range of approaches to ceramic arts being taught around the state.  The pairings of artwork provide an opportunity to see the ways student artwork compares to and contrasts with the work of their professors.

This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see work from many Alabama college and university art departments in one place. Ten professors and ten students are featured in this exhibition, which will be on display from February 15 to March 15, 2017 with an opening reception on Saturday, February 18 from 5 – 8 pm.

The exhibition concept is in spirit with Space One Eleven’s Mentor/Mentee windows exhibition program which showcases the work of Alabama art educators and their strongest students. The Mentor/Mentee program offers a platform for sharing Alabama’s academic arts accomplishments with the public. It also provides exhibition opportunities for established and emerging artists to interact with our communities as they investigate and present their work within the context of our rich cultural history.
