Janet Macpherson: Mirabilia
A new collection of ceramic objects.
May 30-June 21, 2015
Opening May 30 from 2-4 PM.
This new collection of ceramic objects invites an encounter with the marvelous,
the monstrous, and the hybrid. It alludes to links between wonder, pleasure and the human appetite for the rare and the strange. Hybrid beings force us to the limits of our understanding, as they present us with two things happening simultaneously. They are constantly in flux, uniting and diverging at the same time.
– Janet Macpherson
