Opening January 21st at PHD Gallery is Macedonian Inspirations: Modern Artifacts featuring Photography by David R.Hanlon and Ceramic Vessels by James Ibur.
During two recent summers, photographer David R. Hanlon joined an archaeological team excavating a medieval castle in Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia. Twenty of his Macedonian photographs, which integrate past and present iconography, are on view at PHD Gallery. Complementing the photographic images are ten Macedonian inspired, ceramic vessels created by James Ibur. The pieces on view meld images of spirals, labyrinths and other bridges with iconic vessel imagery inspired from Mediterranean Amphoras, Middle Eastern minarets and elements of African Architecture. Hanlon and Ibur coordinate the Photography and Ceramics programs respectively at St. Louis Community College-Meramec in St. Louis.
