Tweevenings with Broc Allen


Tuesday, October 7, 2014

6:30 – 7:30 pm

Tweed Museum of Art





The East Meets West Connection


Broc Allen is a fiery ceramics artist from the Twin Ports area who creates wood-fired ceramics. He presented on Voulkos last year, and he is back by popular demand to join us at Tweed to present works from the current exhibition Resurfaced and Reformed: Evolution in Studio Ceramics. He will attempt to demonstrate the Asian influence in Western studio ceramics.


Allen emphasizes that most of the works on display have some influence from Asia, and will =thus select several pieces on display to contrast these divergent modes of art with aesthetic characteristics rooted in Asia.
