Derek Weisberg: Porcelain Promises in the Storefront Gallery

March 1 - March 29, 2012
Opening Reception: March 1st, 6-8pm

Greenwich House Pottery is pleased to present PorcelainPromises – new figurative sculptures by artist Derek Weisberg. For his first solo exhibition in Greenwich House Pottery’s Storefront Gallery, Weisberg has created porcelain sculptures that reflect an introspective and eclecticsensibility.


“I create works of art that are emotional and psychological self-portraits.Through my work I make sense of my life, my experiences, and the times in which I live. I do not make photorealist portraits, instead I endeavor to achieve an interiority. I create sculptures that are accessible and allow the viewer to have an experience that cannot be articulated - simultaneously igniting contemplation, reflection and a lasting relationship with the work. The works reflect humanist ideology; searching for truth and universal morality based on the commonality of the human condition.” –Derek Weisberg
