Clay Celebration at Marco Island Center for the Arts Has Giftable Ceramic Art


Marco Island, December 5, 2019: Marco Island Center for the Arts is pleased to announce the exhibit, “Celebrating Clay” by the Art Center’s Clay Guild members. The show and sale run from December 9, 2019 – January 7, 2020, from 9 AM – 4 PM. The Second Tuesday Exhibition Reception is December 10, 2019, from 5:30 – 7 PM.  

The artwork on view and for sale include art from 20–30 artists with functional wares, sculptural objects and conceptual artworks. The talented Clay Guild members present a fascinating overview of the variety of ways “ceramic artists further craft traditions, explore innovative approaches, and utilize this ancient medium for creating compelling new works.” 

This exhibition is an expression of the diversity of the clay medium. It is a human instinct to create with mud and form something useful, beautiful and elemental. These functional and non-functional treasures created by the imaginative worlds of artists will make wonderful gifts. 

In the La Petite Galerie, the oil paintings of artist Gertrud Fuchs will also be on display. This German-born Danish artist feels inspired by the light on Marco Island.
