Bethlem Gallery presents 'Touching the Surface' a new solo show of joy, pleasure and healing told through over a hundred ceramic sculptures by artist Keith Clapson. Open Wednesday to Saturday.


'Touching the Surface' is abundant with Maximalism through artist Keith Clapson's persistent sculpting and glazing in clay. Filling Bethlem Gallery with over a hundred works, the pieces are inspired by Clapson's obsession with Madonna and a desire for more. 'Touching the Surface' represents Clapson's recovery from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) through the multitude of tactile, highly glazed ceramic sculptures. It is curated by Rina Sagoo and Amanda Glynn.

Time: 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM
