Guadalupe Robinson of Huntsville, Alabama is one of 14 artists selected to exhibit in the 2014 Alabama and Neighbors Ceramics Exhibition and Sale, on view through Nov. 2.
In addition to the exhibition of a single work from each artist, all finalists will participate in a weekend-long sale, Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, in the newly renovated Susan Phillips Gardens. The Friday evening sale is a ticketed event, where guests may browse and shop the sale before the general public.
This program has been made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Continuous respect for the material is a principal factor I try to maintain in my work. I also have a great reverence for the idea of craftsmanship, and this is what I aim for. My work has developed from the respect I have for clay and the joy I experience when working with it.
