Ceramic artist Susanne Kubler French and sculptor Ira Jones employ earth and fire to create their show, which can be seen Oct. 4-29 at The Artery, 207 G St. in downtown Davis.
An artists’ reception is planned from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, as part of the Second Friday ArtAbout.
Kubler French teaches ceramic art at Merced College where she also coordinates the exhibition program for the college’s art. Her pieces stress the vertical totem as it defines our human connection to nature.
Jones says his works are “compilations of emotion and constructivist-oriented aesthetic that becomes personifications of the vessel.” He approaches his art with a feeling or general idea, using abstract expressionism to give voice to his concepts. Shino and ash glazes complement his sculptural forms.
The Artery is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays (until 9 p.m. Fridays) and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
