The Workhouse Arts Center is proud to host the best nature photography from around the world – Nature’s Best Photography. After being invented just over 100 years ago, almost all Americans carry a camera in their pocket and people today see more images in a day than most humans in history saw in a lifetime. So sometimes it is easy to forget the awe inspiring wonder of nature and what it truly means to see the best photography capturing the world around us.
The 5th Annual Workhouse Clay National Ceramics Exhibition represents the depth and breadth of contemporary functional and sculptural ceramic artworks being created throughout the country. Ceramic Artist and Educator, Anne Currier, juried nearly 500 images to select 54 pieces of art which incorporate a contemporary spirit as well as a technical mastery of the material. The show is a rare opportunity to see a variety of styles and techniques which encompass the field of contemporary ceramic arts.
