Water-based Fired Clay Sculpture
Curated by Cheryl D. Cooper
August 6 - September 20, 2015
Mudpies, a sculpture group, is a unique complement of three dimensional artists that have utilized an array of themes and subjects for their art work. The medium of choice is water-based, fired clay. The sculpture covers a range of interests to include children, women, animals and the odd fella thrown in the mix. These art works offer sculpture narratives that are fresh, original and completely new.

Spotlight Gallery: About Face
August 27 – October 11, 2015
For eleven years artists have been gathering at the CCMA for monthly portrait sessions. Huddled easel to easel and elbow to elbow; the painters and drawers squint, gaze, and stare at the seated model before them. Although the artists are intensely focused on their personal tasks, they form an artist community through their shared experience. In this exhibit, we offer the public a rare opportunity to view an array of wonderful portraits that were produced at these sessions.
Through October 11, 2015
Young Artist Alcove:
August 20 - October 11, 2015 Artist Statement:
"These dresses were inspired by the traditional Japanese Kimonos. I’m inspired by the fabric folds, the flowing fabrics, the belts, the color combinations and patterns. My focus is on making movement in my work through repeated lines, value changes, patterns and colors. I prefer to use colored pencil and water color. I feel like these two media help me work quickly and it helps me to blend colors easily."
