"Visions In Clay" at LH Horton Jr Gallery

September 5-27, 2019

The LH Horton Jr Gallery presents the 20th Annual Visions In Clay Exhibition and Awards Competition. Founded by the San Joaquin Potters Guild in 2002 through 2007, Visions In Clay was turned over to the Horton Gallery in 2010 to continue presenting the ceramics based exhibition. Visions In Clay is the largest exhibition of ceramic works in the San Joaquin Valley, and has been featured several times in the national magazine, Ceramics Monthly. It’s an exceptional show of craftsmanship and diverse style.

Sarah Millfelt, Executive Director of Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is this year’s guest juror who selected the works and awards for the exhibition. The selection was based on quality of craftsmanship, unique content and form, as well as technical skill.

Exhibition Awards: Best of Show $800, 2nd Place $600, 3rd Place $400, San Joaquin Potters Guild Founders Award $300. Many thanks to our Award Sponsors: Laguna Clay and San Joaquin Potters Guild.

This year’s exhibit features 57 works by 51 artists from around the country, including local artists Joe Mariscal, retired Delta College ceramics professor; Kayla King, 2017 Delta College graduate and 2019 SF State graduate; and Tricia Hand from Tracy. To view the exhibition on-line and link to the artists’ websites, visit the Gallery website.

Admission to the Gallery is free and open to the public. Recommended parking is available in the Shima lot for a fee of $2.
