The Artery plays host to mugging

By
From page A11 | February 26, 2013 |

“Mugs & Mugs” by Rebecca Bresnick Holmes and Shannon Marie Moore is an intriguing take on the mug, featuring more than 100 thrown mugs and a collection of graphite drawings inspired by vintage mug shots. Their show will be on display at The Artery’s gallery, 207 G St., from March 8 through April 2.

Moore was inspired to draw her “portraits” after discovering vintage mugs shots from the early 20th century. Her drawings — graphite on Arches paper — have captured the expressions and emotion of her subjects, reflecting both their intimate and confrontational nature.

Holmes has been throwing pots for more than 17 years and enjoys making food-safe functional ware. She especially appreciates the mug, which she sees as both a quotidian and yet intimate object. She uses a variety of clays, ranging from white porcelain to deep black, to create a diverse collection of mug shapes and textures.

Both artists, who have studios in Winters, will be at the opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, March 8.

The Artery is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays (until 9 p.m. Fridays) and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
