Coming This Spring!

Visit us in the Sales Gallery this spring for a sneak peek at work by our current emerging artist grant recipients. During the months of April and May, we’ll represent the work of our Fogelberg Fellowship and Anonymous Artist grant recipients — Maia Homstad, Keather Lindman, Bri Burke, Soojin Choi, and Peter Ronan — as they near the halfway point in their year-long residencies.

Artist Spotlight: Peter Jadoonath

Peter Jadoonath will tell us about his 20-year love affair with a Max Beckmann painting in a moment. Perhaps, if we are already familiar with Beckmann, we could have guessed it. There is something reminiscent in Jadoonath’s wares. He gives us dynamic fields of patterned surface against uninterrupted curves of form. Sometimes he activates the work with stylized figures and engages the user on multiple aesthetic and narrative levels.

Artist Spotlight: Brett Freund, McKnight Artist Fellow

Brett Freund’s work incorporates color, sketching, and repetition. He intuitively constructs from slip cast parts. The result is a single product that communicates preciousness, but is manipulated with a chaotic energy. Although he essentially uses prototypes and reproducible parts, he creates decorative objects with personal, interior spaces.

Freund is a 2018 recipient of the McKnight Artist Fellowship for Ceramic Artists and NCC is proud to be part of his professional and creative journey.

Artist Spotlight: Bryan Czibesz, McKnight Artist Resident

“I am at heart a tinkerer, and regularly working with my hands is at the core of how I engage with the world.”

Bryan Czibesz came to NCC’s McKnight Artist Residency for Ceramic Artists from the Hudson Valley, where he teaches at the State University of New York at New Paltz. Grounded in the tradition of object making, he asks questions of authorship and authenticity through varying degrees of engagement and dislocation between the hand and material manipulation.
