Concordia is pleased to present a ceramic exhibition that will be on display at the Marxhausen Gallery of Art Jan. 11 through Feb. 18, 2016. A reception will be in the gallery Jan. 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. with a talk at 2 p.m. The exhibit is titled “Support Structures: An Exhibition of Regional Ceramics” and will feature the work of nationally recognized artists Rain Harris, Forrest Gard and Tyler Lotz.

Curated by Shayla Marsh, a graduate student of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, “Support Structures” highlights artwork that is an outgrowth of the relationships formed between artists and their partners, as well as within the ceramic community at large.

According to Marsh, the exhibit will include a wide variety of ceramic production from the Midwest, featuring wall relief, hand-built vessels and slip-cast pots, as well as a community-based art project seeking to enhance community through conversation in Seward, Nebraska.

All exhibits at the Marxhausen Gallery of Art are open to the public and free of charge. The gallery is located in Jesse Hall on campus and is open Monday–Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. The gallery is closed when classes are not in session.
