An art exhibit in Queens puts a spin on a traditional art form.

The work of more than twenty artists is on display at the LIC Arts Open Gallery.

"Fire and Clay," the fine art ceramics exhibition, includes nearly 40 different clay sculptures. 

Curators of the exhibit said that ceramics are traditionally associated with tableware and pottery, not expressive art. 

"It is not just mugs and vases, but it really can express emotion and make statements," said Peter Goldwater, the co-curator of the "Fire and Clay" exhibit.

This is the first time LIC Arts Open has had a ceramic only collection.

The exhibit will be on display through November 30th.
