Formal Analysis: Brittany’s exhibit brings awareness to turtle nesting grounds. She says, “I want to create a sense of awe, and remind people of the beauty and tranquility of a beach that serves a different purpose, more than just a sandbox it can be a habitat for beautiful fragile creatures.”
Content Analysis: Brittany used low fire clay and then glazed her ceramics.
Synthesis / My Experience: I enjoyed walking through her exhibit because it took me to the beach. I enjoyed seeing all of the little sea turtles walking towards the ocean. I felt as if I was watching the turtles hatch right in front of me. I enjoyed that she took such a beautiful thing in nature and brought it into the gallery. I also like that she actually brought sand into the gallery. This really transformed the gallery into the beach.
