Last week, a new art show opened in the Braitmayer Gallery. The show includes art from the fall afternoon ceramics and studio art classes as well as work from ceramics students in Ms. Arrieta’s Hand-building and Sculpture class. Arrieta’s students are exhibiting contemporary replicas of Peruvian pottery they have been researching, building, and glazing during Trimester 1.
In addition to viewing the engaging Peruvian vessels, visitors can read about the history and culture of the Moche ceremonial vessels that inspired their effort. During the project, the ceramic artists enjoyed learning about the history of these pots and the animal and human forms that are used to decorate them, while students from the Advanced Topics in Spanish Literature and Culture class wrote gallery notes in both Spanish and English to provide historical context for the Moche culture. The Spanish students also helped to translate the artists’ statements which accompany each work and are posted in both English and Spanish. All in all, this effort provided an interesting interdisciplinary project for our students.
The show will remain in the Braitmayer Gallery all month and we encourage you to check it out if you were unable to attend the festive opening on December 5.
