In the Clay Kitchen with Ginger Geyer
See what our San Angelo National Ceramic Competition Invited Artist, Ginger Geyer, is cooking up in her studio!
For each San Angelo National Ceramic Competition, a noted ceramic artist is asked to display a small focus exhibit, which highlights the artist’s work, within the larger competition. This year SAMFA is pleased to invite Ginger Geyer of Austin, TX.
Here we present a video mini-series called, "In the Clay Kitchen with Ginger," where she's at work on the pieces she calls "Sharing Slices." These eerily realistic ceramic pie slices look good enough to eat! Geyer's pie slices are on display at the Neill-Cochran House Museum (currently closed due to the pandemic). Videos courtesy of the artist. Filmed by Rick Geyer.
Support for the 360-degree virtual tour of If These Walls Could Talk, on view at the Neill-Cochran House Museum through July 26, 2020, comes from the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin's Office of Economic Development as well as from the Henry, Dickinson, Fenn, and Meehan families.
If These Walls Could Talk is a collaborative project between the Neill-Cochran House Museum, visual artist Ginger Geyer, and actor and storyteller Jennifer Rousseau Cumberbatch. The project is built around a retrospective exhibition of Geyer's work, installed within the historic rooms of the museum. The work engages with past and present and both comments on and expands the narratives one expects to hear at an antebellum site. Cumberbatch's performances take individual pieces Geyer produced specifically for the project as inspiration to dive deep into the issues of race and equity that run throughout the site and Austin's history.
