This season at Salmon Falls Gallery we have invited a few of our artists, past and present, to curate exhibits. Clay artist David Ernster starts us off this May and June by selecting ten truly remarkable artists to participate in his exhibit: David Ernster Curates Clay. Here’s his thinking on his art and the artists he has chosen:

“I have been working in clay for over 30 years now and from the very beginning there was always this question about where or how art intersects with craft. I have contemplated this for a very long time. I think I may have finally come to some kind of understanding of the answer. It seems that you do not need to be a craftsman to make art but art frequently occurs from the hands of craftsmen. Fluency facilitates sublime expression of our human condition. The craftspeople in this show have, in my opinion, the fluency to make it happen.”

David Ernster Curates Clay can be seen through June 27 at Salmon Falls Gallery in Shelburne Falls, MA. In our brick & mortar gallery Th/F/Su/M: 10am to 5pm, Saturdays noon to 5pm, and virtually in our online store 24/7.
