Trending Towards Tapestry / A Changing Epoch | Rachael Juzeler

Trending Towards Tapestry / A Changing Epoch is an exhibit of my explorations in glass, mosaic, and plastics. With my all-encompassing philosophy of creative reuse and working with processes having a high degree of experimentation, my art is reflective of the intense beauty found in the natural world and my surroundings in Southeast Alaska, while acknowledging and reflecting on the societal problems of waste, industrial and plastic pollution, and climate change. Entwining my research into cave paintings, crazy quilts, plastic recycling and utilizing my continuing education in painting and glasswork, I have woven together an exhibit illuminating all of these subjects.

FACE IT! - Faces of Fear, Anger, Reverie, Defiance, Delusion and more | Ronald Viol

Face IT! is an exhibition, primarily, of ceramic vessels and sculptures that explore how the human face expresses ideas, emotions, feelings, and moods. The sculptures range in size from several inches to over two feet. The works are made of stoneware clay and they are stained, underglazed, painted, weathered, and glaze fired to cone 5.
