‘Eight from ACGA’ opens at Davis Art Center

The Davis Art Center’s annual ceramics exhibit, “Eight from ACGA,” opens on Friday, April 26, in conjunction with the California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art.

Featured artists include Gerald Arrington, Alice Corning, Maria De Castro, Julia Feld, Susanne French, Patricia Griffin, Lee Middleman and John Schnick. Two receptions will be held for the show: an artists’ reception from 5 to 7 p.m. April 26, and a Second Friday ArtAbout reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on May 10. The exhibit runs through May 25.

Juror Lana Wilson said she looked for a wide range of ceramic work, from innovative sculptural pieces to beautifully executed functional forms, as well as careful craftsmanship, in choosing the work presented in the show.

“It was a treat to find a freshness in many pieces that exuded an energy that announced, ‘I’m worth your delighted attention; give a bow or just start clapping,’ ” Wilson said.

Despite the diversity of the artists’ styles, many pieces on display share a common source of inspiration in the patterns, rhythms and forces of nature. Arrington’s “Neolithic Teapot” confronts assumptions about natural versus artistic forms, incorporating and reflecting the natural process of erosion.

Middleman’s classically functional pots are based on patterns and textures that emphasize the organic interplay between the order and randomness found in nature.

De Castro’s fascination with archeology informs her work with the mystery of ancient cultures, religions and peoples whose spiritual lives were intimately tied to the natural world.

The Davis Art Center, 1919 F St., is open from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
