The Gallery in the Scott Center at Carroll Community College will be the venue for Free at the Center: Eleven Sculptors in Clay from Feb. 13 to March 19, 2005. This exhibit of 11 acclaimed artists in the field of ceramics is part of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts Tour de Clay, a celebration of extraordinary ceramics of more than 800 artists from around the world. Carroll is one of many participating venues throughout the region.
The gallery will open with a public reception on Feb. 13, 2005 and close on March 19, 2005 with a second reception. Gallery hours are Monday to Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Featured sculptors include:
Maria DeCastro, M. Angela DiCosola, Leah Hardy, Joanne Hayakawa, Priscilla Hollingsworth, Laura Jean McLaughlin, Catherine Paleczny, Kathleen Royster, Ceil Leeper Sturdevant, Dong Hee Suh, and Cheryl Tall.
"Carroll County has a thriving arts community and significant arts venues, yet people may not always think of the county as an arts destination," said Maggie Ball, director of Art at Carroll. "This is a great opportunity for the public to come face to face with high-quality artists and their artwork and to develop an awareness of the beauty around us right here in Carroll County."
Ball said that Carroll received an invitation to be an exhibit host from the event organizer, The Baltimore Clay Works.
Carroll is conveniently located at 1601 Washington Rd. in Westminster, Md.
