IS183 Art School Presents “Tablescapes: A New Look at Everyday Objects”

IS183 Art School Presents “Tablescapes: A New Look at Everyday Objects”.


IS183, Art School of the Berkshires, invites community members to the opening of Tablescapes, an installation curated by ceramicist Ben Evans that will encourage viewers to see commonplace objects in a new light. The opening reception will be held on December 6th from 5 – 8 pm during Pittsfield’s First Fridays ArtsWalk, visitors to the reception will be the first to view the show and meet the artists. The installation which includes functional work in clay, metal, wood and mixed media will be on display at 305 North Street in Pittsfield from December 6th through December 30th.With contributions from fourteen artists, Evans plans to construct a landscape out of functional objects. In Tablescapes, tables, cups, bowls and other items that we see and use every day will be transformed into sculptural forms, enabling viewers to look more deeply at these functional objects. Displayed on six tables – an integral part of the show – the objects will form an interesting, multi-level terrain. Though the show will be on display through December – and visitors are encouraged to view the store-front display any time – the reception on December 6 will be the only opportunity to meet the artists. All are welcome!Participating artists are: Daniel Bellow, Undine Brod, Lorimer Burns, Jordan Colon, Ben C. Evans, Jess Fitzgerald, Liz Daly Fougere, Joshua & Kristen Kanter, JK Custom Furniture, Brian McElhiney, Nancy Magnusson, Paula Shalan, Evan Stoller, Keith Wilson
