WORK-IN-CLAY, art exhibition by Ken Goldstrom
Presented by Gurari Collections
June 3 - June 26, 2011
Gurari Collections is pleased to present an exhibition of work-in-clay by the artist Ken Goldstrom. Sculptures, plaques and tiles are armatures for his evocative imagination. Each work of art possess it’s own distinctive character. In fact, these characters, awakened by a childlike curiosity, seem familiar, but are not. Instead, they are Ken Goldstrom’s world brought to life by his mastery in claywork. In turn, we get to indulge in his whimsical creations which are delightful in an age of anxiety.
A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Ken has supported himself as a working artist in Massachusetts for the last thirty years. Skilled in all methodologies of the ceramic arts, he works the three-dimensionality of clay into forms endowed with character. Ken's work transcends the broader context by reducing his symbols to the folkloric.
