Atlantic Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of FROZEN IN TIME, an exhibition of selected ceramic sculptures by Jeff Shapiro and Jonathan Grengs, on view from Tuesday, December 6th through Saturday, December 17th, 2022. A reception for the artists will be held on Thursday, December 8th, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

FROZEN IN TIME explores the forces shaping our world through recorded moments of geologic change that are beautiful and mysterious and add to our collective appreciation of how we are connected to this process. Jeff Shapiro’s work responds to the artistic elements that exist in nature; texture, form, color, and composition, as well as the different stages of transformation that occurs with water; flowing ice, running water, lagoons. Jonathan Grengs examines a broader anthropological view with sculptures that reference contemporary consumer materials suspended into an archeological context reminding us of the ephemerality of life and existence.

Jeff Shapiro studied ceramic arts while living in Japan for 9 years from 1973-1981. His work has been exhibited internationally in: Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Switzerland, Canada, England, and Japan. His work can be found in numerous Museum collections including: The Carlo Zauli Museum, Faenza, Italy, The Massachusetts Museum of Fine Art, Boston MA, The Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY, The Everson Museum, Syracuse, NY, The Fuller Museum, Brockton, MA. 

Jonathan Grengs studied ceramics while obtaining an Art Education degree in 2010 at Carlow University. He taught ceramic classes at Carlow for 6 years until he was accepted into the MFA program at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2019. After graduation, Jonathan is currently working as the Maker in Residence at IUP, and regularly shows his work in national and international exhibitions.
