Clay Convergence
Susan Kadish and Christopher Delloiacono, both Long Island-based artists specializing in three-dimensional representations, will be displaying their recent works at the Art League of Long Island, from January 15 – 30, 2011.

Kadish’s works, strongly influenced by ancient Asian materials and methods to create unique clay forms and vessels, as well as an array of her figurative Buddha sculptures, are an expression of her artistically diverse abilities. Delloiacono’s current body of work uses the ceramic wheel as a tool of both construction and deconstruction. His goals are to demonstrate both his intuitive abilities with the medium and convey a powerful, conceptual perspective.

The combination of both Mrs. Kadish’s representational and figurative work and Mr. Delloiacono’s conceptual and abstract work exhibits the true beauty of Clay Convergence.

Proceeds from the sale of Mrs. Kadish’s work will be donated for scholarships for children with learning disabilities through the Art League of Long Island. Proceeds from the sale of Mr. Delloiacono’s work, especially created for this event, will be donated to United Cerebral Palsy of Nassau County.
