According to a news release, "'Remapping' features six artists who are either currently enrolled in graduate school or have received an MFA during the past five years ... The multi-part vessels of Rebecca Chappell and the architectural units of Gail Heidel reimagine the historical function and context of conventional pottery and architectural elements. The sculptural work of Amy Santoferraro and Claire Hedden rely upon a deliberate and intuitive use of materials to add meaning, examining the color, softness and weight in contrast to the coldness and density of fired clay. The sprawling installations of Mathew McConnell and Casey McDonough explore the synthetic connections between analog and digital means for creating and interpreting both objects and information."
