I am instantly seduced by big skies and sweeping vistas. The topography is unfamiliar and exotic — a mesmerizing landscape simultaneously bleak and sympathetic, peaceful and wild.  These remote and sparsely populated regions offer an inviting landscape for contemplation and imagination, and create a kind of melancholy that suits my personality.

I am curious about people and places. I spend time in cities meeting people and looking at their environment. When I encounter something that raises my heart rate, I make an arrangement in the camera’s viewfinder and push the button. I feel that I see things that other people don’t, so if they look at my photos, they’ll see something they missed.

I believe art is vital to the quality of human life. There is so much destruction around us.  Creating is my way of balancing out what we destroy.

The life of a child is full of mystery — they explore, discover and invent new things daily. As a parent with a young child, we are forced to remove ourselves from our adult world and become more open and curious to the world around us. However, unlike our children, we are tied down by reality. … This body of work is an exploration of that journey back into childhood through the eyes of an adult and parent.

The Phipps Center for the Arts in partnership with Northern Clay Center presents Guillermo Cuellar

After working, exhibiting and teaching in Venezuela for 25 years, Guillermo Cuellar set up a pottery studio in Shafer, Minnesota, adding kiln space and a showroom to his new home. In 2007 he had his first firing and has since had over 80 firings in a reduction stoneware kiln and in his new salt/soda kiln. In 2010 Cuellar was invited to become a host studio on the St. Croix Valley Pottery Tour. In addition to making pots full time, in the last six years he has exhibited, taught workshops, and juried exhibitions. Cuellar was featured on the TPT series Minnesota Original and participated in the documentary Minnesota Potters, Sharing the Fire, which explores mentorship in Minnesota. He has been the recipient of an ECAC/McKnight Individual Artist grant and two Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative grants, which provided funds for kiln materials and shelves.

Cuellar writes, “At this stage in my life and career as a potter I am working toward a balance of studio, teaching and mentoring. I think good pots are associated with what I see as important priorities in living a good life and a balance to the rough edges of contemporary life. I hope my pots will encourage folks to slow down and cook and share their own delicious food and drink in good company.”

Northern Clay Center (NCC) and The Phipps join forces on a three-year exhibition partnership aimed at increasing the profile of ceramic artists located throughout the lower St. Croix River Valley watershed. This cross-state collaboration features two to three ceramic artists annually in the Atrium Gallery at The Phipps. In addition, featured artists present an artist talk prior to each opening reception and a workshop or demonstration event.
