That’s a Real Potter, Harry!

Sure, your momma seems proud of that stupid, lumpy bowl you made at summer camp (fyi, she’s convinced it’s an ashtray), but it’s time you saw what a bona fide potter can do with a mound of clay at Armory Art Center’s newest exhibit, “Sphere of Influence.” Head over to Armory’s Montgomery Hall Gallery (1700 Parker Ave., West Palm Beach) and experience works from Christine Federighi – an internationally recognized artist and former professor in the University of Miami’s ceramics program -- and assemblages of found objects and bronze sculptures from late Armory Sculpture Chair Terry Thommes. Look close at Federighi’s work and you’ll see symbols, images, and shapes that ought to ring a bell – like a torso composed of varying interlocked leaves. Sadly, Federighi recently passed away, but you can celebrate her amazing legacy and the pieces her work inspired at “Sphere.” Scope the whole joint for free Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call 561-832-1776, or visit www.armoryart.org.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: Nov. 28. Continues through Jan. 24, 2007
