Four well-seasoned Michigan clay artists are presenting works of ceramic art that riff thematically on the written word. Clay Gallery is hosting the exhibition, Enscribe And Works in Clay: Hinshaw-McAlpine-Olszewski-Pipenburg, running through Friday, May 2. Using words as their inspiration, curator, David McAlpine and three invited clay artists individually interpret aspects of poetry and prose in a 3-dimensional format, without knowing what approach the others are taking. "We are clay artists and all have some involvement in the literary tradition. The show seeks to represent this… we left it kind of open, so each of us will use a personal approach," says McAlpine who is sure it will be a pleasant surprise.

A reception will be held on Friday, April 4 from 7-9pm. Clay Gallery, 335 S. Main Street. 734-665-2621. claygallery.org
