Video offers another chance to view and enjoy A Clay Bestiary.

A Clay Bestiary, a recent show at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, New Jersey, brought together a diverse body of ceramic work by contemporary artists. The artists have re-imagined and reinterpreted various members of the animal kingdom; infused them with new concepts, ideas, and messages; and in the process freed each piece from being a literal portrayal.

This video presentation by Bill Ivie of CINEMATIC EYE / CINEMABRIDE takes the viewer on a tour of the entire exhibit. As the camera moves around the works it takes in intimate close-up views and steps back to encompass a broader view — all that you would experience had you been there in person. The film moves at a leisurely pace and is interspersed with limited dialog giving the viewers time to really view each work and form their own reactions before moving on to the next.
