Manufactured Mementos: New Work By Darien Arikoski-Johnson and Monica Wilson
This Friday, July 11 from 6 - 8pm, we will host an opening reception for Manufactured Mementos.Our newest exhibition explores the methods in which memories are created, catalogued, and later retrieved. Inspired by the digital recording of moments in time, Darien Arikoski-Johnson's work questions the process in which we create and remember experiences. Monica Wilson utilizes manufactured materials on ceramic organic forms to stir up recollections of times past.
Johnson received an MFA at Arizona State University in 2009. He was an artist in resident at The Experimental Pottery Workshop, Jingdezhen, China and at Guldagergaard: International Ceramic Research Center, Skælskør, Denmark. He was an NCECA emerging artist at the 2012 conference in Seattle, WA.
Wilson graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in ceramics and sculpture, and was an artist-in-residence at the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony (Woodstock, New York), Heights University (Adrian, Michigan), Kripal Kumbh Pottery (Jaipur, India), and Brigham Young University (Provo, Utah).
