The first exhibition of the new academic year at the Sarah Silberman Art Gallery on the Rockville Campus, "American iPottery: eBook & Exhibition," brings pottery, one of the most ancient forms of artistic expression, into the 21st century with the aid of advanced digital interactive technology.

The show runs from August 26 through September 26. The opening reception is scheduled
for Saturday, September 6 from 4-6 p.m.

This exhibition, curated by Kevin A. Hluch, professor of art at Montgomery College-Rockville Campus, is held in conjunction with Prof. Hluch's publication of an eBook for the iPad, titled, "American iPottery," the culmination of a two-year project.

The unique and innovative exhibition showcases some representative samples of the finest work of more than fifty North American potters selected from the eBook. As the viewers appreciate the actual artworks, they can also experience virtual, interactive images of the pots, using the iPads that have been installed in the gallery.

Without doubt one of the most revolutionary aspects is the viewer's capability to rotate the three-dimensional iPad images with the swipe of a finger. The images can be rotated for the viewer to see every aspect of the pottery form. This revolutionary technology also allows viewers to see exquisite details of each pot by tapping on the interactive captions contained within the iPad images.
