Ceramic artist’s work on exhibit at Wittenberg gallery

The ceramic art of Ted Neal is on display at Wittenberg University’s Ann Miller Gallery through Feb. 14.

Neal’s exhibit, Ferrous, is composed of high-iron stoneware clay that mixes oil and energy as a theme with cups shaped like oil barrels as an example.

Ferrous is named for an iron compound in the work he creates.

“It’s a well-crafted show in terms of concept and what he’s doing, a very invigorating mix,” said Dan McInnis, Director of the Ann Miller Gallery and an assistant professor in Wittenberg’s Department of Art.

Neal, who is an Associate Professor of Ceramics in the School of Art at Ball State University, will lecture about his work at 4 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27 at the Ann Miller Gallery.

“It is my hope that the object is not passive, but participates by elevating awareness during the experience,” Neal said in his artist’s statement about his work.

McInnis said each year Wittenberg’s gallery highlights the works of professional artists in different media to display including ceramics, painting and photography. These are also the areas the school offers majors in.

The Ann Miller Gallery, located in Koch Hall on the Wittenberg campus, is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and on weekends by appointment only.
