The Snatchless Necklace
Saturday, December 10, 2016 - 4:00pm • Drury Gallery
Art exhibit by Sarah Palacios
"The process of working with clay has consumed me since I began," says Sarah Palacios, who presents her Plan exhibit of ceramic work in Drury Gallery. She says that working with clay has allowed her to consider her longstanding creative relationship with food academically. Involving herself so completely in the process of creating with natural materials that relate intimately to food has led her to the conclusion that our modern world is moving too fast. That there is a truth to the objects that exist after the long, slow, process of creating ceramic wares, and an importance to foods that were made in a similarly slow process. "We must become more acquainted not only with what we eat but also with the origin of the possessions we keep," says Sarah. "There is an intangible notion of interconnectedness that I feel when I spend time creating, and using tools and natural resources that humans have interacted with since the beginning of time." Her show runs from December 6 through December 12, with a reception December 10, 4 to 6 pm.
