Statement:
SMAART Gallery & Studio is pleased to present Neo Cali Clay, a group show that features a collection of figurative and representational ceramic artists working today in California.  The artists in this show are united in their use of imagery to establish a dialogue that considers both the internal and external social issues of today.  Utilizing a variety of references that are considerably personal and yet culturally relevant, even as they often stretch to the fantastic, these artists are committed to the medium of clay as the fundamental vehicle for their unique and modern expressions.  With bold and dramatic visual imagery, bright surfaces, and significant social commentary, these artists have established a voice in the next movement of contemporary ceramics:  Neo Cali Clay.
