New artists in GOCA's Ceramica



We've already written extensively about Mark Wong, who will display 1,000 crane platters as part of the Galleries of Contemporary Art's upcoming Ceramica: Contemporary Clay show. However, we had yet to touch on the two other artists slated to show with him, Daniel Bare and Valerie Zimany of South Carolina's Clemson University.

  • Del Harrow's "Machine Botany" detail.

And sadly, we won't, since Zimany and Bare had to back out of the show due to their infant son's illness. "While we are disappointed to lose the chance to highlight this duo's innovative work in ceramic installation, sometimes you cannot control the circumstances," GOCA's press release says. "We hope to bring them out at some point in the future for a different project."

Two Colorado artists will take their place: Corie Cole and Del Harrow. GOCA says they "are incredibly innovative in their field — Cole traveled to China to create the project we will be highlighting, while Harrow has been receiving significant national and international attention and was recently featured in the "Overthrown" ceramics-focused exhibit at the Denver Art Museum."

Elaine Ng
  • GOCA
  • Elaine K. Ng's "We Were On Our Way Home" detail

Still showing with Wong, Cole and Harrow are Jerry Wayne Morris, who will create a new, site-specific installation for the show, and Elaine K. Ng of the prestigious Cranbrook Academy of Art.

The show opens at GOCA 121 on Friday, Feb. 8, with a reception and artist talks. Look out for more coverage from the Indy in coming weeks.
