Mythology Meets Archetype

By Josh on Feb 10, 2014

Northern Clay Center - Mythology Meets Archetype
Opening Reception Thursday, March 13, at 6:30 pm
​The shows runs from March 14 – April 27, 2014

Join us for an opening reception! Mythology Meets Archetype is curated by Heather Nameth Bren, an NCCexhibition committee member, professor, and ceramic artist. Featuring the artworks of Christie Brown (London, UK), Michelle Erickson (Yorktown, VA),Bonnie Marie Smith (Kingston, NY), Kelly Rathbone (Portland, OR), and Vipoo Srivilasa (Melbourne, AU), the exhibition will respond to personal, cultural, and religious myths that have grown out of the desire to know (or the posture to know) the unknowable. Symbols of the god figure, the mother figure, the self, and the demon have been used to describe ancient and contemporary narratives. This archetypal cast of characters is employed as agents of one’s personal or cultural identity, spiritual devotion, and even power to control the masses.
