Weir Farm and Beyond: Photo Ceramics by Xiomáro

About

This exhibit is titled Photo Ceramics by Xiomáro: An Homage to J. Alden Weir and the Tile Club. Xiomáro, a photographer and the park's Visiting Artist since 2012, applied a modern twist to the idea. Rather than painting on 8" square crème-white tiles as Weir did, Xio used his paint brush to fuse photographic prints he captured at Weir Farm NHS, and other National Parks, onto black ceramic tiles that are 4", 6" and 12" squares. The photo ceramics have a luminous surface and the accidental effects from the flow of the stippled brushwork impart an individualized antiqued texture to each piece. To learn more about Xiomáro and his photography, visit www.xiomaro.com. The exhibit is open every Wednesday through Sunday.
