Up from the Ashes, A Life in Clay by Lee Hazelgrove
2021 marked 35 years for Lee Hazelgrove working as a full-time ceramic artist. This exhibition, while not a retrospective, it does involve all of Lee’s work from pedestal pieces (large in scale) to wall piece--all characterized by his career long exploration of primitive firing techniques. These surfaces include pit firing, traditional raku, saggar firing, and horsehair raku. Unified by form and his approach to the creation of vessels, the artwork exemplifies contemporary designs merging with primitive surfaces.
The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.
Das Pferd (The Horse) by Heidi Nunnally
Heidi Nunnally’s photography focuses on nature, land/seascapes, and horses. From a sturdy Noriker mare and a dapple Icelandic to the sure-footed Irish Cobb and ancient white horses of the Camargue, this exhibit allows one to set foot into the field, pond, or snow to experience wanderlust with the equine.
This exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.
