Clay Art Center I-70 Artists-in-Residence Duo Exhibition: Mike Cerv and Zoey B. Scheler

Clay Art Center is pleased to present 1-70 Artists-in-Residence Duo Exhibition: Mike Cerv and Zoey B. Scheler

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 2th, 6 – 8pm, Ongoing through July 14th

 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of Clay Art Center’s Artist-in-Residence program, started by Reena Kashyap.

Mike Cerv received his BFA in ceramics from Kansas City Art Institute. He is currently an Artist-In-Residence at Clay Art Center where he currently works as both a maker and a teacher. ARTIST STATEMENT:

“My current body of vessels is constructed from both sleek and textured slabs reminiscent of rubble and materials used in architecture. Each form uses a thick slip to join components together – an indicator of physical action. I design each piece to frame and accent the texture present to my pottery. This way of making is influenced by the capability of architecture to combine different materials together. To me, the most evocative buildings have large materials contrasts.”

Zoey B. Scheler received her BFA in ceramics from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and her MFA from Purchase College SUNY. She is currently the Rittenberg resident at Clay Art center where she continues her studio practice as well as teaching ceramics to all ages of makers. ARTIST STATEMENT:

“I am curious about the dynamic that can arise from humans observing and interacting with something smaller than themselves. Some of the most beautiful things in life are tiny; bigger is not always better. I’m fascinated with miniature things, from shitzus to micro-bacteria. My recent works are a series of intimate landscapes that morph between abstraction, place and figurative creatures.”
