Alex Pratt Ceramics Exhibition: Yourist Studio Gallery.

  community member   < less Sgrafitto grouping by Alex Pratt

Yourist Studio Gallery is delighted to feature the works of master potter and Yourist instructor Alex Pratt throughout November. Alex's sumptuous pots are beautifully thrown and always inspiring. Alex uses sgraffito, carving, and slip inlay on porcelain vessels, placing stylized natural forms in a geometric framework. Alex is inspired by the freely-applied linear decoration of Oribe pottery and the tightly interlocking compositional style of Cubist painting and sculpture. Alex is a ceramic artist from Dearborn, Michigan, who received his BFA from the University of Michigan, has taught throughout southeastern Michigan, and exhibits his work widely.

  community member   < less Event Poster

Blood Underwater is a collaborative work, which encourages deep thinking and creative expression. It provides a voice for community members and activists, especially from political, national, racial, religious and other minorities, to express their concerns about global suffering through art. Participants gather around a large canvas with paints and music and are guided through a series of artistic expressions by "artivist" Elshafei Dafalla. The purpose is to use art to protest against violence, torture, enforced disappearances and other forms of brutality.
Eishafei Dafalla received a Bachelor of Arts in Sculpture from the College of Fine and Applied Art at the University for Science and Technology in Khartoum, Sudan as well as a Diploma in Folklore from the Afro-Asian Institute at the University of Khartoum. He earned a Master of Fine Arts from the Stamps School of Art and Design at University of Michigan.

One of the most creative and versatile voices of contemporary rock 'n' roll, Costello first appeared in the late 70s as part of the British "new wave," a category he quickly transcended.

His current show features hits and obscurities from throughout his 40-year songwriting career, and he's backed by The Imposters, his longtime band.
