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: Long Day’s Journey Into Night
Aleta Jacobson

July 9 – August 23, 2015
I have traveled on my art path for a long time, taking wrong turns to exciting adventures. Some were not where I wanted to be. I have changed many times as an artist and each change has become my new life.
Through August 23, 2015


Young Artist Alcove:
Jennifer Vargas

July 9 - August 16, 2015

Artist Statement:
"Art is a part of my life everyday.  Drawing, doodling, creating and imagining are a part of who I am.  My interest in manga and anime can often be seen in my work.  I enjoy creating my own characters, using humor making up stories and locations based upon what is happening in my life."

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.
