NYIT’s Gallery 61 Hosts Exhibition

New York, NY.( February 1, 2010 )-- New York Institute of Technology’s (NYIT) Gallery 61 presents an exhibit of works, entitled Clay City Dreams: Wood and Paper, by NYIT Associate Professor Nicholas Bloom, and guest artists Donise English, Jayne Hertko, and Sook Jin Jo from January 14 through February 18, 2010.

The exhibit combines the unique styles of each artist, whose pieces vary in form and technique. Nicholas Bloom began his clay sculpture with a loose 2-D sketch, creating three-dimensional forms with coils. This process allows the building process and sculpture to develop. The markings and designs are spontaneous on the wet clay and the glazes are kept to a minimum. Bloom’s work is inspired by modern architecture, sculpture, personal doodling, and world travel.

The pieces that will be joining Bloom’s clay sculpture have also been inspired by several characteristics in architecture. Donise English’s collages and encaustic works on paper are inspired by architectural spaces and building elevations.Jayne Hertko’s work encourages the competing forces of carefully formed wheel-thrown ceramics with the unexpected, dynamic results of a woodfired kiln. In addition, Sook Jin Jo gathers wood and inspiration from demolished buildings, constructing elegant panels with paint and fragments. She is currently showing her work at the OK Harris Gallery in Soho.

The exhibit will be held Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., at NYIT’s Gallery 61, located in the New Technology Building at 16 W. 61st Street in Manhattan. For more information,
