Ceramics Reception at the Pence Gallery

Friday, April 28, 6 - 9 PM

Free Admission


You are invited to the Pence Gallery for a public reception in conjunction with the annual Natsoulas Gallery’s ceramics conference taking place this weekend. Check out the ceramics on display, enjoy some wine, and browse the gift shop.


Visit the gallery and view our ceramics exhibit, Moments in Time & Space, featuring the work of Claudia Tarantino, Bill Heiderich, and Daniel Alejandro Trejo. These artists share an interest in capturing the changing quality of time in their art. In her exquisite trompe l’oeil sculpture, Claudia Tarantino attempts “to capture moments in time, past and present.” Representing keepsakes in clay such as photographs, toys, and children’s shoes, she creates tableau in which memories of life are activated. Sculptor Bill Heiderich reinterprets vessels by using shapes derived from traditional pottery. As stage sets of movement and tension, Heiderich is interested in change and the passage of time seen in ordinary objects surrounding us. Daniel Alejandro Trejo’s ceramic forms play with enclosure, as they frame internal and external space. Using wooden supports, Trejo’s art offers up the idea of an integrated art space between artwork and the gallery.  In all, Moments in Time & Space offers a varied look at how three artists depict change within the boundaries of form and time. 


In an additional exhibit upstairs, you can view ceramic creatures by Cathi Newlin. Whether imaginary or incorporating animals, her sculptures are full of color and have a playful energy that you are sure to enjoy.
