FREE PUBLIC TALK | LAUREN MABRY | May 2019

Free Artist Lecture
Friday, May 3rd, 2019, 7 pm at 
Project Art, 54 Main Street, Cummington, MA 01026

Join us at Project Art for a slideshow presentation by Lauren Mabry, whose solo exhibition Fused opens at Ferrin Contemporary in North Adams, MA on Saturday, May 4, 2019.

Fused introduces Mabry’s new series of ‘dimensional paintings’ using color, form and an exuberant sense of play to explore transformative nature of clay. Drips, spills and dollops of brightly colored glaze move across her forms, with a precise sense of chaos. The titled, Fused, eludes to the melted surface created within the kiln. This magical moment is something that Mabry is able to hold to within her glaze work, as if she’s able to slow down time itself.

“Because I strive to keep my work as playful as it is scientific, the things I make exist
where haphazard sketching meets the precision of chemistry.” — Lauren Mabry

A Gallery Talk and Reception will take place Saturday, May 4th, from 5–7pm at Ferrin Contemporary in North Adams, MA. A group dinner will follow at Bright Ideas Brewery & A-OK Berkshire BBQ.

About GrowlerFest At The Brew House Association
GrowlerFest at the Brew House Association, connects artists to the craft beer movement, showcasing ties between food, beer and ceramics. It’s goal is to link craft breweries and the vitality of handmade pottery. GrowlerFest 2018 pairs invited Artists with an Open Call for beer growlers, jugs, and other containers used for storing or serving beer. Curated by Alexandra Jelleberg & Bradley Klem, the exhibition will be on view March 2-29, 2018 in the Brew House Association’s Gallery.

GrowlerFest Concept
GrowlerFest connects artists to the craft beer movement by showcasing the ties between local food, craft beer, and ceramics. It’s goal is to create a “cross current” link between the craft brewery movement and the vitality of handmade pottery. Through the intersection of collaboration and individual aesthetic, we hope to spark investment in handmade objects among a group of people who share a common interest. The enjoyment of food and drink can be greatly enriched by the experience of using the beautiful work artists so thoughtfully produce.GrowlerFest is partnering with the Brew House Association (BHA), which provides a wide range collaborative spaces, programs, and people in order to encourage the pursuit of artistic excellence. The BHA has emerged as a place where code writers mix with sculptors, artists evolve into entrepreneurs, and citizens from Pittsburgh’s South Side, Hilltop, and Mon Valley come to be creative. A former brewery located near Pittsburgh’s cultural district, it presents the perfect location for an exhibition centering on its historical purpose and contemporary identity.The exhibition will be comprised of two components, one being juried growlers from artists who answer an open call for entry, and another being growlers made by an invited list of artists. We will pair these two components in order to create a multi-faceted exhibition which fosters a particular aesthetic while sparking interest in the growler as a form. The events will feature beer tasting and local food and will be free and open to the public during the NCECA Conference.The public is invited to an exhibition and social gatherings centering on the beer growler.

Project Art (Cummington, MA) is partnering with artist Bradley Klem (Phoenix, AZ),The Eutectic Gallery (Portland, OR) and Portland Growler Company (Portland, OR) to bring GrowlerFest 2015 East + West to the East and West Coasts for the first time. All proceeds go to support resident artist programs at Project Art in Cummington & the Eutectic Gallery.

Project coordinators Alexandra Jelleberg and Bradley Klem’s aim is to create a narrative about the link between the craft brewery movement and the vitality of handmade pottery:

Through the intersection of collaboration and individual aesthetic, we hope to spark investment in handmade objects among a group of people who share a common interest. The enjoyment of food and drink can be greatly enriched by the experience of using the beautiful work artists so thoughtfully produce.

GrowlerFest East + West connects artists working in disparate ways and faraway places to both each other and the craft beer movement by offering the surface of a growler as a way to collaborate with one another, and an exhibition with functional and decorative components to draw parallels and comparisons in form, style, design and philosophy between local and global ceramic artists.
