Student Clayworks on Display Through March 27; Reception is March 18
Omaha - An arts exhibition is on view in the Osborne Family Gallery at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Criss Library titled "Inside the Ceramics Studio: A Survey of Claywork at UNO."
UNO’s Ceramics Studio (Room 111, Annex 6405) is housed in a often-missed building in the middle of campus. Instructor Susan McGilvrey scheduled the Criss Library exhibition to give the students' efforts more visibility.
The Ceramics Studio is home to a variety of techniques, temperature ranges and styles of claywork including traditional wheel-thrown pottery forms, sculptural vessels, installation and tilework (and hordes of slipcast frogs). Most of the pieces were created by McGilvrey's students in the summer and fall ceramics classes as well as some assignments from her 3D design foundations class. Additional work by the spring clay classes will be glaze-fired and installed in time for the reception, weather permitting.
A reception is planned for 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, March 18. The exhibition and reception are hosted by Criss Library and UNO’s Department of Art and Art History. The show will continue on view through Sunday, March 27.
