VISION IN CLAY PREPARES FOR NEW EXHIBITION

VIC in partnership with Weave and co gallery sets for August show. Vision in clay is a new platform for artists who work with clay. It was founded in November of 2016 by Ace ceramists Ato Arinze in Lagos. According to him, its aim is to promote the art of ceramics and works of members who are drawn from all over the African Continent.

It would be noted that the award winning late ceramists Ladi Kwali graces the back of the Nigerian 20naira currency and one of the first artist to be immortalised that far. The new generation of potters have moved on to more sophisticated and highly creative approaches to clay manipulation.

In Nigeria universities, the specialization in ceramics is declining by the number and many who choose the path, have been in most cases, out of consequence. The group through its activities which includes: annual exhibitions, workshops, seminars and publications would renew new interest in pottery and clay sculptures among students and professionals alike.

Art24now gathered that the group is open to both young and old, however it is your uniqueness and high quality work that would buy your ticket in. The group could be reached on their Facebook group “potters in town”. If you are or would be in Lagos by the 5th of August, 2017 there wouldn’t be any better “sightseeing” than art born from nothing but dust.
