Address: 9601 Ox Road, Lorton, VA
Times: 11:00am - 6:00pm

Earth and Fire opens doors to collaboration among 35 leading ceramic artists of both East and West and the projection of possibilities for this encounter are endless.  This will mark the very first time that this group of Southeast Asian ceramic artists will have direct contact with an audience in the United States.

Ceramics has played an important role in the Southeast Asian (SEA) region, where daily life and the use of pottery have always been intertwined. Bound by geographic and cultural ties, 10 countries -- Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Laos, Brunei, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar – today make up the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), a regional bloc formed to reduce conflicts and achieve harmony in that part of the world.

The 3rd Southeast Asian Ceramics Symposium entitled Earth and Fire will take place at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, Virginia.  The networking phase of this project was funded by the Asian Cultural Council in New York.  This conference will provide a meeting place for an exchange of ideas and cultural practices between these artists and the local artists, students, and scholars. The interaction would introduce the viewers to a variety of perspectives offered by different artists in today’s society. The view that art is important for the survival of humanity will prevail in the conference, which will also aid the region’s artists in the globalized appreciation of their work.

The exhibition will be on display in the Vulcan Gallery at the Workhouse Arts Center from September 12 – October 19. A public opening reception with food, music and short artist talks will take place on October 9, 6-8pm.

The culmination of the exhibit will be a three day symposium (Oct. 10-12, 2014), where 12 ceramic artists Thailand, Philippines, Singapore will demonstrate their techniques and present lectures.
