Art for the Holidays
December 8 - January 2, 2012



Mark Pharis’s work provokes discussions of form, meaning, process and function. The bowl, teapot or vase is not merely a canvas for decoration in his work, but possesses a strong formal identity and presence—one that stimulates and provokes the viewer to engage with the work of art from all sides.
