vent Description: This one woman show by Robin Leventhal showcases recent work with black clay celebrating the heart with a re-purposed spring as a stand in a series called Light Hearted . There is also a section dedicated to air planters which animate the parched earth and burnished forms. The two largest of these are on the wall becoming Wall Flowers Finally, there are a group of my mixed media pieces which include lacquered and lustred pods and flowers housed with ceramic components, bones and rust fragments enshrined on wood. These pieces were inspired from the passing of my father and were initially for ashes, but evolved into shrines to celebrate the beauty that is life.

Event Description: Robert Bruce’s two-year residency at Pottery Northwest concludes with the solo exhibition “Neontot”. Neontot is a careless, unabashed nihilistic response to the disposable, gentrified culture of the first world and an ironic critique of the art world. Humanity has paved over the beauty of the natural world replacing rivers, trees and open fields with highways, stadiums and casinos. Neontot follows suit by discarding the natural beauty inherent in crafting functional pottery and replacing it with fluorescent glow in the dark spray paint over a dangerously brittle ugly glaze.
Opening Reception: June 2 @ 6-8pm
