Grovewood Gallery presents Interactions, an exhibition featuring figurative sculptures and teapots by contemporary ceramic artist Taylor Robenalt, who has drawn attention for her innovative narrative style, using flora and fauna to illustrate emotion. Robenalt’s latest body of work is influenced by her daily interactions between humans, animals and nature. An opening reception will be held Saturday, May 5 from 2 – 5pm, with the artist in attendance. Admission is free.
Robenalt received an MFA in ceramics from the University of Georgia in 2011. Since then she has completed artist residencies at Odyssey Clayworks in North Carolina and at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts in Maine. Aside from her personal work, she has taught ceramics at Auburn University, Columbus State University, and State College of Florida. She is also a co-founder of Ceramic Sculpture Culture, an artists’ collective which works to promote the art of emerging sculptors creating narrative and figurative works in clay.
