The artistic talent of our local youth, GRADES 9 -12, is on display at the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society, 130 Waltham St. Lexington, MA for the 19th REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL ARTIST GALLERY SHOW. The work of students from Arlington, Bedford, Burlington, Concord-Carlisle, Lexington, Waltham, and Minuteman High Schools will be on view.

The selected artwork on exhibit is not a juried show; the selected work is chosen by the students with the assistance of their teachers. The styles range from energized multi-media drawings to still life studies to architectural designs. Other mediums represented are experimental sculptures, photography, painting and ceramics.

The Parsons Gallery of the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society was built with the philosophy of giving local artists an opportunity to exhibit their work. In that same spirit, we are giving our local student artists the same opportunity. There is no admission fee, parking is free, and the gallery is handicapped accessible. We look forward to seeing you.

State of Clay is in Lexington

8th Biennial State of Clay

May 3 – June 1, 2014

Sunday May 18 Opening Reception 2 – 5pm; Gallery talk w/ Juror, Linda Arbuckle @ 3pm

Gallery Hours: Sun & Tues-Fri 12-4 pm; Sat 10-4 pm; Closed Monday.

The Lexington Arts & Crafts Society hosts new work by 77 Massachusetts clay artists in a juried show.
The 8th Biennial State of Clay celebrates traditional and contemporary vessels, wall pieces ceramic sculptures, and decorative arts. The range of ceramic expression highlights a variety of building techniques and firing methods.
This is the only juried ceramic show that targets clay artists with roots in the Commonwealth. The public has an opportunity to appreciate the breadth of creativity from artists within their own state, to view their thoughts and ideas in clay, and experience the expansive world of the ceramics medium.

In conjunction with awards chosen by the juror, the public is invited to participate in awarding the special “People’s Choice” award by voting for a favorite piece. All works are for sale and must stay on display during the 4-week exhibit period.

Quoting from juror, Linda Arbuckle: “I looked for resolution in the works selected that spoke to the viewer. There are many languages. Some artists make technical excellence sit up and sing, while others use the energy of spontaneous gesture to dance into a viewer’s consciousness. Every rule in art can be broken, if done the right way, and that stepping over the line becomes a part of the message.”
Linda Arbuckle, Professor at the University of Florida School of Art and Art History, has received both a National Endowment for the Arts and Florida’s Individual Artists’ Fellowships. Her work is in the collections of The World Ceramics Exposition Korea International Collection, Inchon, Korea; Archie Bray Foundation, MT; Fredrick R. Weisman Art Museum, MN; Museum of Decorative Arts, Little Rock, AR; Detroit Institute of Art, Detroit, MI; Racine Art Museum, WI; Margaret Harlow Collection, Bemidji, MN.

She will be traveling to Massachusetts to attend the Artists Reception on May 18, and present a juror’s talk. All are invited. She will also lead a majolica workshop at the Lexington Arts & Crafts Society on Saturday, May 17.

Organized by the members of the Ceramics Guild, the gallery sitters are experienced ceramists who look forward to welcoming the public and answering questions.

Free admission. Free parking. Handicapped accessible.
