Gordon Showcases Work in “Art of the Auction”

WILSON, N.C. — For the third consecutive year, Barton College art professor Mark Gordon will have a ceramic work included in the North Carolina Museum of Art’s “Art of the Auction.” This juried benefit exhibition of donated artworks will be held on Saturday, June 8, at 7 p.m. in the East Building at the Raleigh museum.

This year’s featured piece by Gordon is a large, wheelthrown, glazed earthenware bowl that measures 18” x 18” x 3”. The ceramic work is titled “Ripple Bowl,” noting the slip-decorated edging. Gordon formulated the non-toxic glaze for the bowl using copper for green and cobalt for the blue rim.
