This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with gallery owner and artist Charlie Cummings. Through the Charlie Cummings Gallery he exhibits a variety of ceramic art with a focus on supporting artists early in their careers. His annual show Cup: The Intimate Object anchors an active curatorial program that includes both functional wares and sculpture. In his own art practice Charlie engineers multimedia installations that use technology to create sensory experiences that trigger the viewer's sense of awe and wonder.
In the interview we discuss the difference between documentation and art, cultivating a collector base for a gallery, and developing the M.E.T.A curriculum for artists and engineers.
