Artists' Guild of Spartanburg Features Works by Erin Cramer
The Artists' Guild of Spartanburg will exhibit, An Interesting Occasion: Functional Pottery For Entertaining, featuring a collection of ceramic objects by Erin Cramer, on view from Jan. 4 - 28, 2011, at the Guild Gallery in the Chapman Cultural Center in Spartanburg, SC. The Guild will host a reception with the artist during the Spartanburg Art Walk on Thursday, Jan. 20, 2011, from 6-8pm.
Originally from northwest Ohio, Cramer studied ceramics at Bowling Green University and moved to the Upstate in 2006 to earn a degree in art history at Converse College in Spartanburg. She features her ceramic art and pottery at Art Crossing in Greenville, SC.
An Interesting Occasion exhibits Cramer's characteristic combination of function and whimsy. Composed of platters, plates, a punch bowl, cups, covered casseroles, and a centerpiece, the show reflects her artistry, creativity, and "the ever-changing directions of (her) personal vision." Her beautiful objects show not only the versatility of Cramer's chosen medium, but also its ability to record the spontaneous. Starting with the clay on the potter's wheel, or in slabs, coils, and molds, Cramer strives to create vessels that "transform daily rituals into fanciful and spirited occasions."
