On Thursday, June 9, the Swan Coach House Gallery and the Forward Arts Foundation is pleased to open the exhibition, The Summer Swan Invitational.  With this show the gallery launches its inaugural summer exhibition with over 60 regional artists. Each summer, we plan to invite a guest co-curator to select work for a section of the exhibition.  This year the gallery will be set-up as an evolving exhibition space where artwork may be purchased and taken home, and then replaced with new work.

Our first guest co-curator is Erik Haagensen of Mudfire Clayworks & Gallery in Decatur. Erik has curated the functional pottery part of this show. About the artists he has selected, he says, "I look to capture the vibrancy of the contemporary studio pottery movement; standing in awe of the variety of directions these artists have imagined clay. My selection largely honors teachers, who share their knowledge so this ancient art form may be continually reinterpreted for modern living."

"In my role as co-curator", Marianne Lambert says, "I searched for interesting and amusing handmade objects.  I've included some wonderful artists who work in a variety of mediums including wood, metal, found objects, textiles and sweet grass.  While I have chosen some clay pieces, the work is more sculptural and object-oriented than Erik's selections."
