The 48 Hour Clay Project

No one has ever said setting up an exhibition is easy but it is difficult to explain just how complex the process can be. The frustrating part is that a well curated exhibition looks effortless!
That is certainly the case with The 48 Hour Clay Project and I can tell you that a great deal of effort has been put into this exhibition.
The four artists involved undertook this project (see previous post) with integrity and a great sense of adventure and wonder. Exposing themselves to the elements to create the work and then exposing themselves to a critical (but supportive!) audience by exhibiting it.

With honest artwork, such as this, inviting others to view and discuss it takes a great deal of bravery. Here at Pan we are very glad they did.

In the next few days I will endeavour to post more images depicting the making processes and results for your viewing pleasure. Of course it is much better to see the 'real thing'.

The 48 Hour Clay Project is on at Pan Gallery until 4 March
