EXHIBIT: 100 CUPS - One Artist's Journey
The Haan Mansion Museum presents a series of 100 wheel-thrown porcelain cups by Julia Livingston in an exhibition culminating her lifeâ€™s work as a ceramic artist.
Livingston began her exploration as a simple idea to create 100 cups in prolific succession, and it unfolded into a dramatic documentation of a life-affirming creative process.
Each of the hundred cups is a separate unique work, and the â€œ100 Cupsâ€ collection is itself an artwork that is a unity of the individual pieces forming a continuous flow. During the two years of the 100 Cups project, the cups evolved to express a changing internal landscape brought about by critical events in her life, notably, the death of her mother in Cup 84, and at Cup 94, titled â€œSplitting Apartâ€, the shock of her own life threatening illness. Cup 100, titled â€œEnd Point,â€ marked the end of the project, yet pointed to an unknown more.
Along with the 100 Cups series, many of Livingstonâ€™s works from early to recent have been displayed at the Haan Mansion Museum, and many are part of the permanent collection. To preview the 100 Cups series, visit Livingstonâ€™s blog at http://100cupsblog.blogspot.com.
