Gathered to Host Ceramicist Jeremy Foy for June Loop Night

Eye On Art  |  06/07/2019 9:00 am

Gathered Glassblowing Studio, downtown Toledo’s premier studio-gallery space, is proud to be welcoming Chicago-based ceramicist Jeremy J. Foy as their June Featured Artist for their ongoing series, Loop Nights at Gathered. Foy’s ceramic work bridges the dynamic link between athleticism and art-making through the use of sports-related iconography, repetition and a keen awareness of the body. Foy earned his Master of Fine Arts degree from Northern Illinois University in 2016, and is currently an adjunct instructor at multiple institutions throughout the Chicago suburbs. 

In conjunction with Foy’s ceramic, sculptural and print works on display in the gallery, Gathered has partnered with The Arts Commission to host a performance of Foy’s Throwing Vs. Throwing during the Art Loop on June 20th from 6-9pm. Throwing Vs. Throwing blends the framework of baseball and ceramics together into an exciting performance and coincides with the Art Loop’s theme of the month, The Art of Sport. Foy’s performance will begin outside Gathered at 6pm, rain or shine, and will last roughly an hour.

Gathered will also be hosting a glassblowing demonstration by Toledo-based glass artist Tess Healy along with printmaking demonstrations by their second-floor letterpress studio, The Black Iron Press.

Loop Nights at Gathered, a series of Featured Artist receptions hosted in conjunction with the Art Loop at Gathered Glassblowing Studio, announces new ceramic works and a performance of “Throwing Vs. Throwing” by Jeremy J. Foy, with a public reception on June 20th, 2019 from 6-9pm. The Gathered hot shop will be featuring glassblowing demonstrations by Tess Healy, with letterpress demonstrations from upstairs studio Black Iron Press. This event is free and open to the public. Questions may be directed to Gallery Coordinator Ian J. Welch any time via email: [email protected] or via phone: 419-262-5501 during gallery hours (Wednesday- Saturday 12-6pm).
