ESAC Solo Exhibit in the Courtyard Gallery

May 5, 2018 - May 30, 2018

ESAC Solo Exhibit - Splash Bowl

ESAC Solo Exhibit:  Splash, a depiction of our waters to our shores

Opening reception is in conjunction with Art Walk Friday April 6, 6-8

This collection of ceramic art work is simply inspired by life on the Gulf Coast.  Dawson Morgan grew up in Mobile, Dog River specifically, spending a lot of time on the water.  Life, jobs, and family have moved her around a great deal.  Dawson is now settled back to her roots and happy to be back to where her heart has always been.  She has a reverent love and respect for this water.  Some of the work will be stoneware, finished in a matte white glaze representing the splash and fluid aspects of gulf waters.  Some of the works will flow like waves on a calm day, others are intended to portray a more violent yet beautiful conflict such as a crashing wave, or a bulkhead in a storm. Yet, the raku work is more representational of driftwood, bay murkiness, piers, and shore stumps. These 20-25 bowls and centerpieces will have a range from 5” to 24”.  My work in general is hand built with a dramatic display of light and shadow within the piece.  Often the shadows are more important to me than the piece itself.  There is a wall installation depicting flow and movement which is available depending on space and time.
