Artist Reception: Jason Green
February 23, 2013 | 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM
An opening reception for ceramic artist Jason Green will be held on Saturday, February 23, at 7:30 p.m. The reception will be held in the CFA atrium next to the Ortlip Gallery and will include comments by the artist, followed by live music and refreshments. The exhibit, which has been on display since January 18, will be open for viewing to students, faculty, staff, and the general public until its closing on March 7.
“As the work changes our immediate perception of space and presence, it evokes thought of permanence and impermanence,” says Green of his work, which often partners brilliant, fluid colors with multiple transparent layers of bold, three-dimensional patterns. This illusionistic layering is meant to “embrace the polarities of interior and exterior, fluid and static, fragment and whole, new and old.”
In the past decade, Green’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions throughout the Northeast and in group exhibitions both in Italy and China.
Green holds an M.F.A. in ceramics from Alfred University and is currently an adjunct assistant professor of art and design at Alfred.
The Ortlip Gallery is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For further information on current and upcoming exhibits, please contact Director of Exhibitions Renee Roberts.
