Emory & Henry Presents the Ceramics of Valerie Zimany

Sep 30th, 2013   7:30 pm 9:00 pm
Van Dyke Center, Board of Visitors Lounge

Valerie Zimany will discuss her fascinating ceramics exhibition in an Artalk on Monday, Sept. 30 at Emory & Henry College.

The discussion begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Board of Visitors Lounge of the E&H Van Dyke Center.  The exhibition will be shown in The 1912 Gallery, which will open at 6:30 p.m. and again following the Artalk for a reception  with the artist.

Zimany’s work ranges from large-scale installations to sculpture and functional items.  Many objects appear organic. Some have figurative elements added to them in the form of silkscreen decals.  She often draws inspiration from the Japanese tradition, having been to Japan several times as a Fulbright Fellow. 

Zimany discusses how casting organic forms suspends their growth -- creating an artifact or memory out of something that cannot otherwise be preserved.  She also says that she utilizes porcelain for its implicit emphasis on fragility, preciousness, luminosity, and ability to retain fine details.

Zimany is currently an assistant professor of ceramics at Clemson University in South Carolina.

The exhibition is free and open to the public.  Call 276-944-6866 with inquiries.
