ORONO – The Lord Hall Gallery at the University of Maine presents an exhibition of humorous and politically charged ceramic sculpture by internationally known artist Gary Greenberg.

“THINGS RE: Stuff” runs from Sept. 30 through Nov. 11 in the Lord Hall Gallery. An artist’s reception will be held 5:30–7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30. Greenberg will give a public presentation on his work and creative process at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29 in Lord Hall, Room 100. All events are free and open to the public.

Greenberg also will conduct a free workshop for art teachers and UMaine students in the Department of Art’s Ceramics Studio, on Saturday, Oct. 1. Due to space limitations, the workshop will be limited to 16, and registration is required.

Greenberg is a professor of ceramic art at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. He is known for the biting political and social satire involved in his humorous large ceramic installations. For Greenberg, who invented a wet-fire method of firing ceramic ware using a Weber grill that he calls “Jiffy Pop” Pots, humor is ubiquitous.

Lord Hall Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is wheelchair accessible.
