Ceramics and struggle

June 27, 1996|By John Dorsey

Janathel Shaw works in ceramics, and brings to her sculpture the fire of conviction that the title of her current show at Clayworks implies: ". . . and the struggle continues" covers a range of issues including genocide, racism, mothers and children and the ideal of community unification. "My basic desire," she says, "is to analyze the root causes of dissension in the African-American community and to seek solutions." Shaw received the 1995 Baltimore Clayworks Lormina Salter Fellowship, which allowed her to develop this show.

At the Baltimore Clayworks, 5706 Smith Ave., through July 13. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. For information, call (410) 578-1919.
