Swidler Gallery
Platter Exhibit

Swidler Gallery will host
an exhibition of platters by 33
American artists in On the
Table/On the Wall: The Plat-
ter. The invitational, featur-
ing works within the tradi-
tions of utilitarian and
decorative arts, will open
June 1, with a reception from
6-8:30 p.m.; the show will con-
tinue through July 13.
The strong horizontal
volume of the platter offers
the artist an expanse of open
space unlike any other vessel
oriented form, but real space
unlike the painter's canvas.
Today's American artists ex-
plore the platter within tradi-
tions of utilitarian pottery
and the decorative arts.
The exhibition will feature
Rob Barnard's anagama-
fired, Michael Simon's quiet-
ly decorated and salt-fired
and Kathryn Sharbaugh's
precisely decorated useable
platters. Also featured will be
Peter Voulkos with an
abstract expressionist piece
with pierced holes from 1973,
Robert Sperry with two cir-
cular platters with flowing
crackled slip, and Mary Jo
Boles' high relief decoration
on a rococo theme.
Featured from Michigan
will be Simona Alexandrov,
Oak Park; John Glick, Farm-
ington Hills; Paul Kotula,
Huntington Woods; Diana
Kulisek, Detroit; Kathryn
Sharbaugh, Flint; Susanne
Stephenson, Ann Arbor and
Marie Woo, Bloomfield Hills.
Swidler Gallery is located
at 308 West Fourth Street in
the Washington Square Plaza
in downtown Royal Oak.
Gallery hours are Tues.-Sat
11 a.m.-5 -p.m. For informa-
