“Clay is the only medium that uses every element: fire, water, air and earth,” according to Tennessee artist Cindy Billingsley. “It is meant to be touched by the heart, the eyes and the hands.” Billingsley, a pioneering force behind Women Ceramics Sculptors art collective, curated 12 members’ artwork for inclusion in a collaborative Dynamic Narratives exhibition. Known for addressing societal issues through clay, the group explores themes of relationships, Alzheimer’s disease, confines of life, endangered animals, victimization and hope within this exhibit. The collection was showcased at the National Association of Women Artists Gallery in New York City and the Tennessee Art League in Nashville before making its way to the Folk Art Center’s main gallery, where it will be displayed until Sunday, April 29.
