Form and Landscape: New Work by Jeremy Randall
38 E. Genesee St.,
This exhibition marks the first time that Jeremy Randall's architectural ceramic vessels will be paired with his landscape drawings.
Randall's work was recently selected for inclusion in a November show at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He also has exhibited this year at Craftboston Spring, Baltimore Clayworks, the Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton, MA, and Studio 550 in Nashua, NH. Altogether, his works have been shown in more than 60 exhibitions nationwide; images have appeared in Ceramic Arts Daily, Clay Times, Ceramic Review, Stone Canoe, and "500 Vases" and "500 Cups" (Lark Books).
Randall uses color to elevate forms to be celebrated, while conjuring the nostalgia for something old that is still recognized today. His drawings combine graphite and acrylic paint on panel. The colors relate to his ceramic work, and lend a soft energy to the landscape being referenced.
Randall, recognized by Ceramics Monthly as an Emerging Artist for 2009, is digital imaging/web specialist and head of installations at Imagine, studio manager and visiting professor of art at Cazenovia College, and adjunct professor of ceramics at Syracuse University, his alma mater.
His work is held in the permanent collection of the Southern Illinois University Museum and the private Meyerhoff Collection in Baltimore. In addition to Imagine and Gandee Gallery locally, he is represented by galleries in Montana, Ohio, Georgia and Massachusetts.
