SCC Art Gallery Exhibit supports NCECA Conference in Seattle

The Shoreline Community College Art Gallery exhibits “Drink Me: Use and Imagination in the Ceramic Vessel,” from March 8 to April 17, 2012. The exhibit, which offers ceramics in various forms, was planned by college art faculty to support the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Annual Conference, “On the Edge” to be held in Seattle March 28-31, 2012 at the Washington State Convention Center. The College Gallery is listed on conference materials as a local gallery to visit. Shoreline is only one of many galleries to have ceramics shows during the conference timeline.

“The SCC Art faculty saw the NCECA Conference title as a forum for diverse responses around the framework of one idea. Not wanting to tie artists to one form, we chose a single function: Drink Me: Use and Imagination in the Ceramic Vessel,” SCC College Gallery Director Natalie Niblack stated.

The exhibit is a collection of clay vessels created by a number of ceramic artists including faculty, students and invited professional artists. Works will be shown by Meg Hartwig, Tyler Lotz , Saya Moriyasu, Tom and Elaine Coleman, Ginny Conrow, John Dix, Toyoda Mokugen, Jack Troy, Robert Fornell, Jeffrey Hanks, Reid Ozaki, Judith McCarthy, Sue Roberts, and Charles Krafft and others.

A reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 29 and also from 5 to 8 p.m., March 30, 2012 at the College Gallery at Shoreline Community College at 16101 Greenwood Avenue North in Shoreline.

Additionally, SCC Art Professor Bruce Amstutz will curate a student show in the Library with the same dates and open hours as the “Drink Me” show. Brendan Fuller (ceramic tech and Clay Club advisor) will give an exhibit of past guest presenters at the college. This show will be titled, "Lasting Impressions: Work from Two Decades of Guest Artists" and the open hours will be March 24 to April 1, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The College Gallery is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Friday. Shoreline Community College is located at 16101 Greenwood Avenue North, just north of Seattle city limits.
