My friend Amanda Small came to visit FL, this past weekend. Amanda is an international artist who is the Coordinator/Directors at Guldagergaard International Ceramics Research Center in Skaelskor Denmark. Amanda is a free spirit and infectious to all around her.
See the announcement below about her show:
Amelia Center Gallery of Gulf Coast State College presents Trans(in)Form*a* tion, a mixed media installation by Amanda Small. In her work Amanda explores the relationship between physical place and intangible experience, with an emphasis on the idea that movement is an intrinsic and permanent flux existing in all things, as well as being the sign and measure of space, and time, and memory. Amanda’s installations employ mundane materials and ambiguous imagery based on the natural world, micro and macro views of the earth, cells, satellite mapping, topographies and systematic patterning to contemplate the meaning of “home” and “place”.
Trans(in)Form*a* tion will opened the evening of March 29. The work will be on display in the Amelia Center Main Gallery (Room 112) until April 21. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

You can see my new work to the right. My friend Sharbani did an amazing job, writing up a proposal for this show. It was well attended and looked great.
A bit of info about the show:
The exhibit brings together seven artists from varied backgrounds; all have experienced transplantation in some form. Though the term ‘Naturalization’ is mine, each artist’s work investigates some aspect of this process; human relationships and the interaction of matter, material and earth are all subjects.
An intimate, yet diverse display of contemporary, figurative ceramic sculpture.

Show title: Naturalization
The layered result of overlapping cultures, people and the progression of time, Houston’s cosmopolitan, nature provides fertile ground for transplants to put down roots, naturalize. In the dictionary the process by which foreign bodies adapt and integrate into an environment is defined as ‘naturalization’; the word is also used by the US Department of Immigration when referring to the process of immigration. Though the normal impulse is to maintain balance, change is our history, and people move and the energy of growth shifts from place to place. Naturalization takes place when faced with the need to reconcile adaptation with memory and learning occurs when faced with the unexpected or challenging.
