Shirley White-Black: “Embed” at the Clay Gallery in Ann Arbor

Tn 1200 02182b73acee46d4c54b40ccef41271e 1

Shirley White-Black’s (MFA 1979) Embed addresses visual story telling with the use of various media. The exhibition title references forms, images, ideas and inspirations embedded in her aesthetic memory. The resulting work creates fresh allegorical content by combining new ceramic forms with pre-used manufactured fragments, images from graffiti, photo shoots, as well as earlier art works of hers that contain needed referential information. The challenge and the fun come from creating personally meaningful statements about things that shes notices in the world.

October 7 — November 16
Opening Reception: October 11, 7 — 9 pm
