Collection Focus: Jack Earl at RAM
Read about this Ohio artist whose uniquely narrative ceramics illustrate a strong sense of place with a great deal of humor. Collection Focus: Jack Earl is part of series of collections-based exhibitions featuring artists whose work Racine Art Museum holds in-depth. This 20-page catalogue features an essay on the significance of Earl's work along with color images of pieces within RAM's permanent collection.
Earl's pieces are filled with the people and dogs that the artist observes in the rural farm landscape that surround him. It is often thought that, because of our direct access to the outdoors, Midwesterners have a thorough understanding of the rhythm of the earth and are attuned to its four distinct seasons. This meaningful relationship shapes Earl’s unique sculptures.
