Ruth Dwyer and Tara Lynne Franco at the Katherine Butler Gallery Opens Tonight

I am pleased to present a selection of new pieces that were created specifically for this exhibition at the Katherine Butler Gallery. To create this new body of work I built upon some designs and themes I had been working on as well as taking some ideas I have been pondering for some time and bringing these concepts and drawings into reality.
This work continues to explore my interest and concern about our impact on the environment in which we live. I have also reached back into the pool of ceramic history for inspiration for some of the new forms. There are three major themes in the work that is in this collection – the ceramic pillows, the window garden and the Reflection Series.
For images of the work in the show and directions to the gallery visit www.kbutlergallery.com/Templates/featured-exhib.html. The artist reception is tonight, Friday January 16th from 6 to 10pm.
