Adam Helenske - The End is Nothing, The Road is All
Pottery Northwest the Pacific Northwest's premier ceramics studio and a community of artists at many levels is pleased to present "The End Is Nothing, The Road Is All," a solo exhibition of work by Adam Helenske. The show will run from July 13th through August 3rd, 2012 in the Gallery of Pottery Northwest's historic home at 226 First Avenue North (between Thomas and John), just one block south of the Key Arena at the Seattle Center. An Opening Reception with the artist will be held on Friday, July 13th, from 6-8.
A 2008 ceramics graduate from Minnesota State University Moorhead, Helenske dove into the life of an artist when he and his new wife packed up their lives and drove to Seattle in 2009. In June of 2010 Helenske became a resident artist at Pottery Northwest. A highlight of his time at Pottery Northwest was Helenske's involvement with the recent NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) conference in Seattle where he not only exhibited in many galleries around Seattle, but also helped to coordinate conference demonstrations and personally assisted the internationally acclaimed soda-firing artist Gail Nichols in her sold-out hands-on firing workshop at Pottery Northwest.
Adam Helenske is concluding his artist-in-residency at Pottery Northwest with a virtuoso solo soda show: The End is Nothing, The Road is All. Akin to wood and salt firing, but also very different, the dramatic surfaces that can be achieve from soda firing requires an in-depth understanding of flame patterns and paths. The End is Nothing, The Road is All presents the fruits of Helenske's 2 year journey learning the intricacies of loading and firing soda kilns at Pottery Northwest.
