George School ceramics teacher, Amedeo Salamoni, was among the artists that contributed to the Casper Woodfire & Wyoming Clayfest 2021 events in July.
Amedeo facilitated the Artistic Form and Functional workshop at Casper College where he demonstrated his recent woodfire works that begin with carving bottle forms and trays. He also worked with large, closed forms and bowls while at the event.
In addition to the contribution to the workshop, Amedeo’s work was also, once again, accepted into the Art of the State 2021 exhibition at The State Museum of Pennsylvania. This year, the exhibit includes one hundred and four works of art, from one hundred and four different artists. The finalists were selected from over two thousand entries. Amedeo’s stoneware piece, “Square Lidded Vessel,” was chosen to be featured in the exhibit after receiving high ratings from the jurors.
“Art of the State is an annual juried exhibition that has been showcasing the work of Pennsylvania’s artists at The State Museum of Pennsylvania since 1968. The body of art that has been exhibited reflects over a half-century of creative endeavor in the Keystone State. Through the years, artists have shared their ideas and engaged viewers in the categories of painting, photography, craft, sculpture, and work on paper.”
The exhibition is open to the public on Sunday, September 26 through January 2, 2022. You can also view Amedeo’s the artwork virtually through the Art of the State 2021 FLICKR gallery.
