Department of Visual Arts: Opening Day for Sculptural Ceramic Exhibit “Puddles” by Maxwell Parker at Roper Gallery

FSU’s Roper Gallery to Feature Sculptural Ceramic Exhibit “Puddles” by Maxwell Parker

Frostburg State University’s Department of Visual Arts will host the sculptural ceramic work of Maxwell Parker. The exhibition, “Puddles,” will open Wednesday, Oct. 7, at the Stephanie Ann Roper Gallery in the Fine Arts Building of Frostburg State University. This event, which is free and open to the public, will be on display through Friday, Oct. 30.

The show will feature amalgamation-type artworks made with ceramics, metals and glazes that explore impulse, repulsion and balance. Through multiple rapid firings, Parker builds the composition by layering glazes, shards, chunks, bars, nuts, bolts and “really anything that is not too combustible.”

Parker has shown work nationally, including a recent show at The Museum of Science and Industry. Parker is a New York native and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. He lives and works in Tampa, Fla., and is pursuing his Master of Fine Arts from the University of South Florida.

The Roper Gallery is open Wednesdays through Fridays from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, contact the Department of Visual Arts at 301-687-4797.
