Ceramic Sculpture Exhibit in Willow Creek: Ellen Ornitz & Vanessa Rogers

Local artists Ellen Ornitz and Vanessa Rogers are exhibiting their ceramic sculptures at Aunt Dofe’s Hall of Recent Memory in Willow Creek, Montana for the month of November.  Join us for a reception and refreshments on Sunday, November 7, 3-7 pm. The gallery is located at 102 Main Street and will be open from 3-9 pm. Both artists are inspired by natural forms and manipulate cone-six porcelain in their process. Rogers creates highly detailed carved vessels with colorful glazes. She explores hand-carved wheel thrown pottery, creating one-of-a-kind works that are primarily sculptural. Ornitz’s sculptures are fabricated through assembling press-molded porcelain and mixed media. She casts elements of the human body, bones and plant detritus that are combined with concrete, paper and painted boards creating free-standing works and wall-hung tableaus. Her most recent works explore the ambiguity and polarized associations of evocative words.

Vanessa Rogers and Ellen Ornitz both work at the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture in Bozeman. Rogers teaches ceramics for the Emerson in the Frances Senska Pottery Studio; her classes include wheel throwing and hand building of porcelain and midrange stoneware followed by surface treatments such as carving and glazing. She earned a BA in Fine Arts from Humboldt State University in California.  Rogers has studied with ceramic artists Akio Takamori and Kurt Weiser at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena.

Ornitz is the Emerson’s curator of exhibits and education, selecting exhibits and outreach for the Jessie Wilber Gallery, the Weaver Room and the Lobby. She also directs the Emerson’s Schools in the Gallery docent-led tour program and the pottery classes. Ellen earned her B.A. in Painting and Printmaking from the University of California at Santa Cruz, an M.A. in Secondary Art Education from Indiana University and post graduate work in ceramics at Montana State University.
