Celebrate the longstanding relationship between math and art with prints, paintings and sculptures from the Clay Center’s collection. Examine how artists intentionally and intuitively use mathematical concepts like shape, pattern, symmetry and proportion to guide their creativity. Try it yourself when you solve puzzles and build geometric structures in an exhibit that challenges your mind.

Kaufman_eblast.jpg Barrie Kaufman: New Glass
Throughout her 35-year career, Charleston artist Barrie Kaufman has responded to the natural world. Working primarily on paper, her paintings, prints and drawings explore the impact that human activity has on the environment and the wildlife that lives there.

This exhibit features Kaufman’s recent experimentation with blown and cast glass, translating her themes into three dimensions. These new glass sculptures were created in collaboration with master glass artist Karen Willenbrink (Bow, Washington) and the Lhotsky Glass Studio (Zelezny Brod, Czech Republic).

Also on view are a selection of recent prints, drawings and watercolors inspired by the process of creating her luminous glass sculptures.
