African Echoes Recent Ceramic Works by David MacDonald

The Harold B. Lemmerman Gallery

2039 Kennedy Blvd. Jersey City, NJ 07305 (Hepburn Hall Room 323)

February 4 – March 5, 2010

Opening reception: February 4, 4:30p.m. - 7:00p.m.

Participating the NJCU African Heritage Month celebration.

David MacDonald, potter and Syracuse University ceramics professor, creates a wide variety of work including vessels for daily use and one-of-a-kind pieces for exhibition. He draws much of his inspiration from the myriad examples of surface decoration that are manifested in the many ethnic groups of sub-Saharan Africa (such as pottery decoration, textiles, body decoration, and architectural decoration). MacDonald's work spans the complete spectrum of ceramic forms of a utilitarian nature. For the NJCU exhibition, MacDonald presents a couple of dozens of stoneware platters, vases, casseroles, and jars that have been recently created.
