Ceramic artist Chris Corson sees sculpting the human form as a way of exploring the human condition. "Inner emotions are always reflected in the body.”
He began working with clay in 2008 and transitioned to the arts on a full-time basis in 2013. Corson is currently a member of the Studio Gallery in D.C., along with the Washington Sculptors Group and the Maryland Federation of Art. He has been exhibiting his sculptures since 2014 at venues including the Circle Gallery (Annapolis), Delaplaine Arts Center (Frederick), Baltimore Clayworks and Hillyer Art Space (Washington).
Chris Corson is a new resident of Greenbelt and a participant in the ceramics program at the Community Center. He feels "very in sync with Greenbelt,” he comments, noting the “sense of community… almost a sense of mission.”
