Humboldt State University's First Street Gallery presents "Ceramic - affordable art for the season," through Dec. 31. Featured in the show, will be artwork by twelve artists from California's North Coast who work in diverse styles and mediums. The show is a fundraiser for the gallery, with a broad selection of affordable, high-quality ceramic pieces suitable for gift giving during the Holiday Season.
Ceramic features traditional ceramic vessels and ceramic sculpture by North Coast artists Kit Davenport, Nancy Frazier, Cooper Goldman, Ryan Hurst, David Jordan, Peggy Loudon, Louis Marak, Scott North, Michael Pearce, Keith Schneider, Meredith Smith, and Shannon Sullivan.
“We’re very pleased to bring together these accomplished artists during this holiday season,” says First Street Gallery Director Jack Bentley. “This exhibition reminds those of us who live here, how fortunate we are to live in a community that is also the home of so many wonderful visual artists.”
“Ceramic” is produced by Humboldt State students. Students enrolled in the Art Museum and Gallery Practices Program participate in the daily management and planning of shows at the gallery. The gallery provides real-life opportunities for the students to develop their gallery and museum skills, which in turn provides them with experience that will help them to enter the job market. Many students who have participated in the program have gone on to careers in museums and galleries throughout the nation.
The exhibition will run through Dec. 31. A reception for the artists will be held at HSU First Street Gallery on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. during Eureka’s monthly Arts Alive event. The gallery is open daily from noon to 5 p.m. The gallery will be closed on Christmas Day and is located at 422 First Street Eureka, California. For more information, call (707) 443-6363.
