Lacoste Gallery is pleased to present Still Alive, Love You-Don, the tribute exhibition for ceramic legend Don Reitz (1929-2014), titled from one of his last telephone messages. The exhibition will present the artist in all facets through a wide display of his one-of-a-kind ceramic pieces, quirky memorabilia and images from The Ranch, his beloved home and studio in Arizona. Reitz's iconic ceramic art is held in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, LACMA, The Art Institute of Chicago, and The Museum of Arts and Design in New York, among many other museums and institutions. In his own words, "My art has always come out of need. Not everyone may like what I do, but I can only make what I feel in my heart. You have to have courage to put out what you know to be truth."

Josephine Burr & Nathan Prouty
Next Generation Ceramics

June 13 - July 4, 2015

For more artwork, click on image.

Two emerging sculptors expand the definition of what clay can mean. Josephine Burr combines a clean, modern style with the touch of the hand—the foregrounding of material and process—that has long been the hallmark of clay. Her pieces - looped, clustered, connected and shifting - explore the fluidity of lines, rendered in a shifting spectrum of form, surface, color, and light. Burr is one of a new generation of artists taking the classical medium of ceramics and updating it to a modern sensibility. Her contemporary Nathan Prouty reworks the knick-knack and souvenir, tokens of the incessant stimulation of the modern world, into clay works of art encased in plastic domes, much like snow globes in souvenir shops. He creates vast installations of these small works, dredging up anxieties and associations of overstimulation. This two-person exhibition is devoted to the exploration of pure sculpture and ideas over form and process.
