Cranbrook Ceramics +/- 25 Years - Exhibition runs Oct. 15, 2016–Jan. 28, 2017
Throughout the years, the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan has made a significant impact in the fields of art, design and architecture. Legendary artists like Maija Grotell, Richard DeVore and Jun Kaneko have all contributed to the ceramics department’s reputation for excellence and innovation. Committed to discussions surrounding material specificity, students are encouraged to look all around themselves for inspiration, technical expertise and dialogue. "Cranbrook Ceramics +/- 25 Years" examines the trajectory and contributions of artists who studied under the guidance of Tony Hepburn and Anders Ruhwald, who have guided the program for the past quarter century. The 25 participating Cranbrook artists include: Jan Abrams, Inkyo Back, Ariel Brice, Josh Clark, Lindsey Dezman, Abby Donovan, Jessika Edgar, Heather Mae Erickson, Devin Farrand, Jon Geiger, Brian Giniewski, Shannon Goff, Tony Hepburn, Ariel Herwitz, Richard Hesketh, Drew Ippoliti, Tom Lauerman, Jackie Laurita, Akemi Maegawa, YunWook Moon, Thomas Muller, Mia Mulvey, Elaine Ng, Anders Ruhwald and Susan York.
