- This event has passed.
On a recent trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, I came across a symbol: a circle with four arrows, each pointing outwards in each of the four cardinal directions. This symbol is an Aztec rendition of the Five Directions. The center, or the fifth direction, represents the heart of the world. This symbol was described to me as the four directions, with the addition of where you are now as the circle at its center.
This symbol serves as inspiration for this one-night event. Five Directions represents the work of five artists at different stages of their creative lives. All five met at the ceramic studio of Melissa and Gus Miranda. Gus Miranda is both teacher and connection of these individuals; he is at the center. The other four individuals are showing four other ways that one can express oneself through clay. Five artists, each expressing Five Directions, including their present physical and creative state.
