James Webb: “Reupholstering the Fabric of Old Stories”

(Cincinnati, Ohio) - Eisele Gallery presents “Reupholstering the Fabric of Old Stories” an exhibition featuring Cincinnati artist James Webb and historical European and American paintings from the gallery’s inventory. The gallery will host an opening reception for the artist on Friday June 3rd from 6-9pm. The exhibition will be on view at the Eisele Gallery May 31st – June 18th, 2022. Webb’s newest body of ceramic work is inspired by stories of reupholstering old couches as told by his deeply American-spirited immigrant grandmother. His work is reaching to get-at-the-heart of the very fabric of the nostalgia in the stories about his grandmother and in particular ones she told of the old world living in East Germany. Eisele Gallery continues its rich tradition representing historical artwork with an installation of 19th and 20th century paintings that will be displayed “In Conversation” with Webb’s ceramics.

About James Webb

James Lee Webb grew up on the front porch of the south in a small, somewhat quaint little town called North Middletown, Kentucky. He received his BFA in ceramics from Eastern Kentucky University before leaving his Old Kentucky Home to obtain an MFA in ceramics at Southern Illinois University in 2017. James has completed four long-term artist residency programs along the east coast after graduate school, including Mudflat Pottery school in Boston, MA, Clay Art Center in Portchester, NY and Pocosin School of Fine Craft in Columbia, NC. He has recently begun his fifth clay residency program at Queen City Clay in Cincinnati, Ohio. James has taught ceramics at the University of Cincinnati and currently teaches ceramics at the University of Dayton, OH. He has also lectured at Harvard University and was one of few artists selected internationally by Ceramics Monthly magazine as an Emerging Artist in ceramics in 2019.
