Shape-shifting in clay exhibition now on display at UH

May 14, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Work from the Shape-Shifting: Surface & Form series by Darcy R. Bowden.

Darcy R. Bowden has been working in clay for the past decade following a 40-year hiatus.

Over the years, she taught art in the Ann Arbor Public Schools and worked as a printmaker.

Her recent body of work combines hand-built forms with playful graphic compositions akin to those in her prints. Disparate shapes and elements find unity in her work.

Influences include modernist design, Japanese textiles and abstract artists Ellsworth Kelly and Franz Kline. A Flint, Michigan native, she has lived in the Ann Arbor area for more than 40 years having earned a B.F.A., M.A. and teacher certification from Eastern Michigan University.

Check out her clay artwork for yourself!

Where: Gifts of Art Gallery – University Hospital Main Corridor, Floor 2.

When: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily through June 7
