As part of In Residence, HCCC is pleased to invite you to “Conversations on Craft” featuring ceramic artist Clara Hoag and HCCC Curatorial Fellow Sarah Darro. The event will take place on Saturday, July 9, at 3:00 PM at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, followed by a wine and cheese reception.

Clara Hoag is a Houston-based artist whose works are featured in the current exhibition, In Residence. Her sculptural ceramic works cobble figurative elements with architectural forms that inspire a critical comparison between building infrastructure and the human body. Hoag’s work reflects on the human condition and the transforming urban experience. Limbs reach outward, beckoning the viewer, while scaffolding and soaring skyscrapers act as supports. Individual elements are assembled to comprise her works. Further informed by her process, Hoag explores the ambiguous boundaries between fragility and stability, construction and decomposition.
