Her work has been featured internationally, nationally, and regionally in magazines, newspapers and television, including on the Home and Garden Television network (HGTV) and Crave Magazine, among many others. In addition to exhibiting in galleries, Kahler’s large scale handmade tile murals and sculptures appear in public and private collections. Notable commissions include the Delaware Art Museum, West Chester University and the Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival. Kahler conducts workshops nationally and participates in a wide range of Artist Residencies, some of which include the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Inglis House. Kahler is an adjunct faculty member at West Chester University, where she received her bachelor of fine art degree in 1995. Drawing from nature, much of Kahler’s art bends toward the organic, making use of abstraction and assemblage. There is a tactile intimacy that is translated through the mud between her fingers to her pieces that beg to be touched. Kahler is captivated by surface and in a never ending exploration of the vast textures that can be achieved through clay. The majority of Kahler’s work is cone 6 oxidation however, pit firing techniques and photo lithography were used for the 24/7 Project.
History of Japanese Ceramics New Hampshire Institute of Art Sharon Art Center Campus CER051 Nov 3 â€“ Dec 8, 2015 (6 weeks) Tuesdays, 6 â€“ 7:30pm Professor John Baymore $149 This series of slide lectures will explore the cultural context in which this art form developed and currently thrives, including the impact of geography, deeply held Shinto and Buddhist beliefs, the lifestyle of the Samurai class, and the impact of the Tea Ceremony on the art. We will look at the production of the Six Ancient Kilns, the Mingei Movement, the work of the Living National Treasures, and look at contemporary trends as new artist-potters throw off the shackles of centuries of tradition. Finally, we will look at how Japanese ceramics had an impact on contemporary American artist-potterâ€™s work, and how Abstract Expressionism impacted the Japanese ceramists.
