CURRENTKen Eastman15 March to 28 AprilA new series of powerful and statuesque ceramic vessels that demonstrate a distinctive new expression of making from this internationally celebrated artist. Multiple clay slabs are brought together in an improvisational manner, creating undulating multi-faceted forms with an uncanny ability to shift and alter appearance according to one’s viewing point or environment.
Gordon Baldwin curated by Anthony Shaw10 May to 30 June
Guest curator Anthony Shaw has been collecting art work for 45 years. His collection is one of the most important holdings of contemporary ceramics, sculpture, two-dimensional art and other objects and is currently on long-term loan to the Centre of Ceramic Art at York Art Gallery. He writes: 'My friendship (with Gordon Baldwin) has been a considerable influence in my life... (His) unique vocabulary of white forms with painterly additions of colour, set him apart from the rest of the pottery world (and) question the prevailing views about ceramics and what they could be.'
