Feat of Clay Exhibit at Scarfone

Published: Feb 5, 2002
Large crowds of small clay creatures have invaded UT’s Scarfone/Hartley Galleries.  They are from Feat of Clay, the world of dog-men created by Georgia artist and University of Georgia Art Professor William Sapp.  In addition to Sapp’s fascinating and often startling unfired clay dog-men, the exhibit also features woodblock and monotype prints, and cast and fabricated aluminum sculptures.
 

Sapp’s images, several inches tall and in groups of 500-1,000, energize the space they occupy as they appear to run and push, struggling to reach the top of the heap.  Large photographic wall panels (4x20’ and 4x24’) function as story boards to echo the theme of man as beast.

William Sapp has exhibited throughout the United States and South America.  His works are included in many corporate and private collections. Feat of Clay runs through Feb. 28.

 

The Scarfone/Hartley Galleries are located on the UT campus at the corner of Brevard and North B streets.  Hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 1-4 p.m. Saturday, closed on national holidays.  Admission is free.
