Moments in Time & Space is a new exhibit opening on April 14 at the Pence Gallery. Ceramic artists Claudia Tarantino, Daniel Alejandro Trejo, and Bill Heiderich share an interest in capturing the changing quality of time. In her exquisite trompe l’oeil sculpture, Claudia Tarantino attempts “to capture moments in time, past and present.” Representing keepsakes such as photographs, toys, and children’s shoes, she creates tableau to access our collective memories. Bill Heiderich reinterprets vessels by using shapes derived from traditional pottery. As stage sets of movement and tension, Heiderich is interested in change and the passage of time seen in ordinary objects. Daniel Alejandro Trejo’s ceramic forms play with enclosure, as they frame internal and external space.
