Allegany Arts Council presents the work of Brad Blair in Obscure Oddities: Clay Creations
CUMBERLAND—The Allegany Arts Council’s Saville Gallery will show the work of Baltimore ceramics artist Brad Blair in a solo exhibition, Obscure Oddities: Clay Creations, which will be on display through October 31, 2020. This series explores Blair's sense of creativity, imagination and patience as he builds detailed sculpture monstrosities with personalities all their own.
“I find that my sculptures tend to have looks of confusion, surprise, concern, anger, doubt, shock, and disbelief,” said Blair. “These are the same emotions that I sometimes feel about the world around me. I try to create works with various personalities so that all viewers have something they can relate to.”
Brad Blair is an artist, educator and gallery coordinator living in Baltimore, Maryland. In 2014, he earned an M.F.A. degree from Florida State University (FSU) focusing on ceramics and sculpture. Prior to FSU, he graduated from Towson University in 2009 with a B.S. degree, majoring in Art & Design. Aside from making artwork and exhibiting it nationally, Blair is an adjunct professor at Towson University, gallery coordinator at Harford Community College and instructor of ceramic classes at Baltimore Clayworks and The New Phoenix Pottery.
