Ceramic Exhibit

Some of the best ceramic artists from the Mississippi Gulf Coast have come together in a combined exhibition at the Ground Zero Hurricane Museum. Regan Carney, Gale Andersson, Mark Buszkiewick and Karl Menzer, all members of the Bay Artist Co-Op, are displaying their hand built and thrown works. These works vary from a multidimensional family plaque and bowls created by Carney to the more abstract vases by Buszkiewick, Oyster shells presented by Andersson and traditional wheel thrown bowls with realistic details and complex glazes are on display by Menzer.

This display is a design rich environment of structural and smooth textures. Carney and Menzer both present their works to reflect this style and technique. Beszkiewick and Andersson bring variety and contrasts in color when which helps move the viewer’s eye around each form. These dynamic shapes, rounded bottoms and welcoming colors evoke interaction from the viewers. According to Steve Barney, President, The Arts, Hancock County said; “We are pleased to present the fine ceramic work produced by artist from The Bay Arts Co-Op. This collection represents diversity of style and refined techniques which honor the rich legacy of the Bay Arts Co-Op, the oldest Artist Cooperative in the history of Mississippi.
