August 2020 Window Art Exhibit - Animals!
This exhibit features several artists using clay as their way to express various versions of the animal theme. Some artists included in this exhibit are:

Andrea Peyton
Dale Bunse
Gerry Brehm
Gary House

...many others!

Animal figures have been portrayed in cultural art for many thousands of years. As artists we develop ideas into something that transcends representation. Our sculpture doesn't have be realistic in order to be recognized. Work is often more compelling when it is simplified or stylized.

Take a peek in our window in August to appreciate the playful ceramic art pieces they have on display.
