Gibberish: Sapient Fool’s Gold a solo art exhibition by Jeannie Hulen, associate professor of ceramics at the University of Arkansas, will run March 25-May 2 at the GRIN Gallery in Providence, Rhode Island.
The show is presented in conjunction with the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts 2015 annual conference and calls attention to less evident aspects of the relationship between people and the natural world. The exhibition considers intellectual and psychological aspects of the natural world and explores various facets of the symbiosis between the two.
“Humor, sarcasm and outright disdain for popular and contemporary culture have been expressed through use of materials,” said Hulen, chair of the Department of Art in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences. “My work consistently draws on ceramic’s post-industrial and consumer meaning and references the material value and historical significance of terracotta and porcelain.”
