Ceramic Works
At Swidler Gallery

Arts Guild Sale
In Ann Arbor

Swidler Gallery will host
exhibitions of recent gestural
earthenware platters and
vessels by Ann Arbor artist,
Susanne Stephenson and a
series of stoneware teapots,
vases and bowls by John Nee-
ly. The exhibition will run
through May 25.
Susanne Stephenson's re-
cent ceramic work continues
to make color synonymous
with form as clay, decorating
slips and glazes wrap the
vessels' hollow interior. Her
imagery captures the energy
of the artist and records an
impression of land/seascapes
viewed during travels.
Susanne Stephenson, who
will retire this year as pro-
fessor of art, Eastern
Michigan University, studied
at Carnegie Mellon Universi-
ty where she received her
BFA in 1957 and at Cran-
brook Academy of Art taking
her MFA in 1960. In this ex-
hibition, Ms. Stephenson will
include a series of new
twisting bowl-like forms.
John Neely's utilitarian
pottery projects the serenity
of the Japanese aesthetic
while retaining strong
American roots. His wheel-
thrown pots are accented by a
controlled surface of salt and
wood atmospheric firing.
These surfaces are not only
visually enticing, they also of-
fer a tactile surface not often
associated with contemporary
American pottery.
John Neely, associate pro-
fessor, University of Utah,
studied at New York State
College of Ceramics at Alfred
University taking his BFA in
1975 and at Ohio State
University receiving his MFA
in 1982.
Swidler Gallery is located
at 308 West Fourth Street in
the Washington Square-Plaza

Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and
by appointment. For informa-
