At Guardino Gallery

show

Opening Reception: Last Thursday, August  30, 6-9 pm​

Michele Collier is a ceramic artist that stretches, compresses twists and tears the clay to match the image in her imagination. She works to preserve he fluidity of the slab while manipulating it to express the figure in motion. 

Michael Vos has developed an ongoing body of work entitled Dead Cities, which is a documentation of abandoned and forgotten places across the world. It is predicated on the idea that if humans collectively disappeared suddenly and mysteriously, what would the world look like without us?

Penda Diakité is a collage/mixed media artist. She grew up between Mali, West Africa & Portland, OR.  As a result, she meshes the vibrant colors and patterns of her Malian side with influences of her urban upbringing. 

Andy Kennedy crafts portraits in clay. His busts look different at different times, expressions change with parallax perspective. This comes from orking in a style of cartoonish, primal  impressionism, but the clay body itself (including glazes) deserves half the credit.
