TIFTON — Ceramic artist Lindsay Rogers will present her “WRAP(t)” exhibit at Plough Gallery on Saturday, Nov. 2.
The exhibit features a new body of ceramics work by Rogers, currently living in Johnson City, TN. Rogers will be at the opening reception for the exhibit, 5-7 p.m. Saturday evening.
Her artist talk will start at 6 p.m.
In the artist statement on her website, Rogers talks about the connection between food and the tools we use to eat and prepare it.
“Many years ago, I chose pottery as a vehicle for self-expression as an artist because I saw the tremendous beauty that came from the experience of creating and sharing a lovingly prepared meal,” she writes. “Over time, I came to understand just how ripe with possibility this connection between pottery and food could be.”
“All of the forms I make have one common thread: to encourage a reconnection with each other and with the food we eat,” she continues. “It is my desire to always use the physically combined beauty of handmade pottery and local food as an interactive tool; one capable of providing joy and value in our daily lives.”
“The vessels’ forms in the exhibit are created with a focus on comfort, gathering, abundance, and protection,” according to Rogers’ exhibition statement for the show. “Presentation vases, jars, and basins are all made with the intention to celebrate and store what we harvest. Tableware is designed as a way of, literally, bringing us to the table in appreciation.”
Rogers was the first artist that the Plough Gallery hosted back in 2015.
Plough Gallery is located at 216 W. 8th Street.
