Enter the Bathysphere - Artist Reception for Jason Bige Burnett and Eleanor Annand.

On April 7, 2011, Crimson Laurel Gallery in Bakersville, North Carolina presents Submerging the Bathysphere: Illustrative Ceramics by Eleanor Annand and Jason Bige Burnett. These two artists have come together to investigate life at sea through illustrative ceramics. In both form and content they have combined their playful sensibility to create decorative and functional ceramic work.

Eleanor Annand is primarily a printmaker and illustrator. She creates prints with strong central characters that tell tales of exploration, escape, and disg
uise. These stories evoke folklore of the past and urban legends.

Jason Bige Burnett involves screenprinted and digital printmaking methods into his ceramics. Simultaneously he incorporates pop influenced imagery that is both personal and universal creating a sense of deviancy and play to his ceramic work.

This exhibition will opened on April 2nd and remain through April 30th. The exhibition will be available online on April 2nd. Join us for an artist's reception on April 9 at 6pm. For more information call Crimson Laurel Gallery at 828-688-3599 or online
