Protean is an exhibition showcasing contemporary ceramic artworks from members of the Canberra based artist collective, Claybodies. Defined as the potential to assume many forms, Protean is a metaphor for the material of clay and the current culture of ceramic practice in Australia. This exhibition will push deeper into the practice, ask questions and re-consider the potential of clay.
Deborah Clark, Senior Curator, Visual Arts, Canberra Museum and Gallery will open Protean at 6pm on Friday 3 July 2015.

Established in 2013, the Claybodies ceramics group has now expanded beyond its original cohort of ANU School of Art graduates to nearly 55 members (and growing). Claybodies vision is to provide members with a forum for support, to network, exchange information and actively engage as professional practicing artists.
