Conversations in Clay at the OC Fair

Today was de-installation day at the Orange County Fair for AMOCA Ceramics Studio’s show “Conversations in Clay.” Today was also the first day I got to see the show hung! Sometimes it just works out that way. I thought I’d share a few of the images I captured before we started taking down the exhibit.

“Conversations in Clay” featured the works of a variety of artists associated with AMOCA Ceramics Studio from Staff to Instructors to Resident Artists to Volunteers and therefore a wide range of styles. We were lucky enough to gain some exposure and recognition The Orange County Register! Check out the article and their slideshow of images here.

First, I’d like to share the work of AMOCA’s Studio staff – Heidi Kreichet, Cj Jilek and Bobby Free (also pictured with Bobby’s tiles work is Wendy Thoreson & Michael Garcia):

The exhibit was installed and planned by Heidi and Mary and I think they did a wonderful job! A big thank you to everyone who attended the fair and stopped by the Visual Arts Gallery during their visit.
