Victoria Norton • Abstractions

April 4, 2009 - May 20, 2009

An exhibition of exciting new works called “Abstractions”, by local artist V. Norton, opens at the Jerome Artists Cooperative in Jerome, AZ on Saturday April 4, 2009. The public is invited to the opening reception on that evening from 5 pm to 8pm, with music and refreshments.

The artist likes working with different geometrical forms. Combining these forms created breakthrough ceramic sculptures, including hanging Raku Wall pieces, which allows the clay to become the canvas for these contemporary interpretations.

Ms. Norton began her life long passion for ceramics after graduating from UCLA. Another love is calligraphy. “I’ve always loved letterforms and saw myself creating these beautiful shapes.” She then began 10 years of formal study with a master calligrapher. She now works as a free lance calligrapher and teacher, most recently at NAU.

The show will highlight a dramatic a new calligraphic presentation named, “Words” on an 8 foot unfolding scroll, as well as other new art forms.

Through the Jerome Artists Cooperative, V Norton’s art-works have been purchased by collectors worldwide. We invite you to the gallery to see her other creations as well as the wonderments of this show “Abstractions”.
