Thrown Altered: Vessels Out of Round - Opening Night Photos

David Bolton - Guest Curator
 David Bolton, Head of the Ceramics Department at the College of Lake County guest curated Thrown Altered: Vessels Out of Round. 

"My intention with this exhibition is to expose students and the public to great ceramic art and to make them aware of more possibilities with clay and the wheel.  The artists in this show have transcended the process to create their individual visions in clay"

The 14 invited ceramicists from around the country and one from Canada were selected for the way they explore throwing and altering their work.

Ben Bates - Invited Artist
Two local artists in the show were able to attend the opening:  Ben Bates - Libertyville, IL and Doug Jeppesen - Sugar Grove, IL
