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.
Through September 20, 2015.

Spotlight Gallery: About Face
Multiple Artists

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:
Jackie Navarro

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."
Through October 11, 2015

Line Gallery:

CCMA in the News
David Allen blog

Inland Valley Daily Bulletin columnist David Allen keeps up with what's going on at CCMA. He recently wrote about the outdoor sculpture now gracing the front lawn of CCMA. The sculpture was created by Fullmer Construction superintendent Gary Rue entirely from materials leftover from construction the parking lot next door.
