Dirt on Delight

Northwest favorite Jeffry Mitchell is one of 22 artists to be included in a show at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in Philadelphia. The show is called Dirt on Delight: Impulses That Form Clay and opens this Friday.
*
Jeff said he's really proud to be included in this show. He graduated from Tyler School of Art so it's a real full circle moment. Jeff's piece is the lead image, too. Considering who the other artists are, that's pretty damn cool!

"The artists in "Dirt on Delight" include the current generation (Nicole Cherubini, Jessica Jackson Hutchins, Jeffry Mitchell, Sterling Ruby, and Paul Swenbeck), artists who emerged during the 1990s (Ann Agee, Kathy Butterly, Jane Irish, Arlene Shechet, and Beverly Semmes), those who established clay as a critical material during the 1960s and 1970s (Robert Arneson, Viola Frey, Ron Nagle, Ken Price, Adrian Saxe, Beatrice Wood and Betty Woodman), and historic and outsider figures (Lucio Fontana, Peter Voulkos, and Rudolf Staffel, as well as George Ohr and Eugene Von Bruenchenhein)."

Congrats, Tiger!
