Thea Clark: Do/Undo
Do/Undo showcases Clark's earliest and most current
jewelry work covering a ten-year period on the theme of conflict
between nature and the built environment due to accelerating climate
change. The earliest work began after Clark, a former NJ
resident, experienced Hurricanes Irene and Sandy. These two catastrophic
weather events in a short period left an indelible emotional impact,
while time spent volunteering in Staten Island after Sandy led to
absorbing powerful scenes of destruction.

Malcolm Mobutu Smith:
Mobutu Smith: Evermore Nevermore includes
ceramic work inspired by concerns, fears and uncertainties from
ongoing social-political frictions. It is the continuation of a
series that started more than a decade ago with the inauguration of
our nation's first Black president. According to Smith, this
accomplishment peeled back the thin veil hiding the hate pulsing and
seething through our country.

The Cantilevered series

at only one end. Precariously balanced, they suggest the uncertainty
and instability of twenty-first century lives. Work from The Weight pays
homage to the mysteries of nature, human nature, and the contemporary
burdens we bear in the 21st century.
