Scholarship Exhibition

Having been raised in the north woods, I am accustomed to seeing deer mounts
in people’s houses. Some people enjoy them, and some people think they are
ugly. Claire Anderson seems to have solved the problem, she made ceramic
deer mounts that can be placed on the wall instead of real animals. Not only
does real art look better on a wall than once living animals, but the detail
in her work is very pleasing. Deer (ceramic 2007) is a white ceramic with
blue designs imprinted all over. I would much rather have her art hanging on
my wall than a stuffed mount, and I think that it would be a good idea for
everyone to try. Hang up art from people in your house, not art from mother
