New Solo Exhibit

The story behind this body of work stems from my journeys to various destinations, undertaken without a predetermined goal. Upon reaching each location, I engage in extensive walks, allowing the surroundings to guide me towards discovering the true essence of the place. The central theme of the showcase revolves around vessels as travel pods that symbolize the authentic identity of the voyager.

Please join me on June 8th at 6 pm for the opening reception of my exhibition titled OUTRÉ. It's a free event and open to the public. I hope to see you there.

Warm regards,

Vartan Poghosian, a contemporary ceramic artist, was born and raised in Yerevan, Armenia.
He received his education at the Mkhitar Sebastatsi Educational Complex in Yerevan,
specializing in Ceramic Arts and furthering his knowledge through mentorships. Following
his military service, Poghosian relocated to the United States and settled in upstate New
York. There, he embarked on a journey of teaching and volunteering at art centers and
community colleges.

Initially starting with a ceramic studio, he established the community art center known as 4
Elements Studio in 2009. This center provides exhibition space and art classes for
individuals of all ages, including children, adults, immigrants, and those with disabilities.
In response to the challenges posed by the pandemic in 2020, Poghosian established
Clayville Pottery. This venture became the primary platform for highlighting his original
ceramic creations and artwork.
