Brand New Artwork at Sidestreet Arts, Portland, Oregon for July 2021

Amy Fields starts with a lump of raw clay; Beth Kerschen starts with images of her surroundings. Both artists use their materials to create beauty, encourage reflection, or discover the unpredictable.

Beth layers and interweaves her photographs, asking us to reflect on how our own lives paralleled The Big Pause as a collective examination of what we will now call normal. Amy’s porcelain vessels are wheel-thrown, then carved and pierced. But don’t let their delicate appearance fool you: they’re fired in an atmosphere of super-heated wood ash where their mineral content reacts to form an unpredictable glaze finish.”

Here are details about the show openings and artist talk for my new exhibit with Amy Fields at Sidestreet Arts.
