ENTER MULTIPLE DIMENSIONS: A COMBINED 2D/3D MEDIA SHOW!
Photographer John Stier and ceramic artist Kathy Swan combine 2D and 3D media for their show, Multiple Dimensions, during the month of May at Artists’ Gallery. This collaborative exhibition includes work that combines Mr. Stier’s photographic images fired onto Ms. Swan’s ceramic pieces, providing another dimension to both artists’ work. The show runs from April 30-May 26, 2019 with a reception on Saturday, May 11 from 3-6 p.m. at Artists’ Gallery, 8197 Main St., Ellicott City, Md.
Mr. Stier’s photographs do not follow any particular theme. Rather, they are a selection of some of his favorite images from various travels. The photographs include locations from as far away as Hawaii and Australia but also as close as his back yard in Columbia. The collection includes flora and fauna, city scenes, landscapes and some natural “abstracts.”
Ms. Swan creates functional stoneware pieces with botanical motifs. In Multiple Dimensions, she combines bittersweet vine handles and some of Stier’s photographs with her hand-painted ceramic surfaces to create varied layers of visual and tactile texture.
