Remember this guy?
No? Here's another peek......
That's right! Ben 'Brawny Man' Upchurch. I first met Ben Upchurch while helping install the Landscape show at the Figge Art Museum back in 2014 (for a look at the posts regarding that show installation process, click Handle With Care Part I and Handle With Care Part II).
Anyway, I was helping out at the Figge recently when I saw the new exhibition mounted by the University of Iowa Museum of Art called Clay: Traditions in Shards. In that show are works from several noteworthy ceramicists such as Jun Kaneko, Robert Arneson, and Benjamin Upchurch. Wait?!? Ben Upchurch? That's right kids, Ben Upchurch.
Feast your eyes.......
Here's a sneak peek at some of the other works in the show.
Clay: Traditions in Shards runs through October 30, 2016 at The Figge Art Museum. You should make a point to go check it out (it's on the 2nd floor).
