Visions in Clay 2014: Horton Gallery,  Aug. 21 - Spet. 18
The Delta College Center for the Arts L.H. Horton Jr. Gallery presents the 5th Annual Visions In Clay Exhibition and Awards Competition, August 21 - September 18, 2014. All events are FREE and open to the public!

Visions In Clay is the largest exhibition of ceramic works in the San Joaquin Valley. It's an exceptional show of craftsmanship and diversity of style through individual use of materials. In addition, the editor of Ceramics Monthly selected Visions In Clay to be featured in the magazine’s September issue. This year’s exhibit features 56 artists’ work from around the country, including local artists Bruce Cadman and Jessica Fong (Stockton), Jesse Rohrer (Lodi), and Don Hall (Turlock). There are 65 pieces of ceramics on display, which may also be viewed on-line through the Gallery’s website here:

Independent juror, Garth Johnson, Curator of Artistic Programs at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, selected the works for exhibition. The exhibition includes functional and sculptural works, with awards for both categories. Works were selected for their unique form, technical skill, and glazing and texture qualities.

The Visions In Clay exhibition is the first of three shows for the Gallery’s Fall Season. The Fall exhibitions are discipline-based shows that focus on the primary arts curriculum of the Fine Arts Department: 1) ceramics, 2) 2D–3D (painting, printmaking and sculpture), and 3) photography. This exhibition format brings in a large group of artists to present their work, providing greater exposure to diverse styles and media to Gallery audiences, thereby extending the educational and creative experience for our students. The Gallery’s primary mission is to support student-learning outcomes in the visual arts curriculum by building knowledge in the aesthetic, technical, cultural and historical context of the visual arts.

The LH Horton Jr Gallery is located on the ground floor of Shima Center, and is wheelchair accessible. Admission is free and open to the public. Recommended parking is available in the Shima lot for a fee of $2. Tours are welcome, and Gallery Talks and special needs may be addressed by contacting the Gallery.
