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 diversity of style through individual use of materials. Liz Quackenbush, ceramic artist and Professor of Art at Penn State University, was this year’s guest juror who selected the works for the exhibition. The selection was based on quality of craftsmanship, unique content and form, as well as technical skill. This year’s exhibit features 60 works by 50 artists from around the country, including Stockton artists Joe Mariscal (recently retired ceramics professor at Delta College) and Shiloh Gastello, (former student of Joe’s here at Delta College, who is now completing his MFA).

The award recipients will be honored at the Opening Reception on September 1st. Liz Quackenbush is a Professor of Art at the Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania; where she has worked for the past 20 years. Her ceramic work has been included in the Minnesota Pottery Tour for 16 years. She has taught at numerous craft schools, lectured at universities and art centers nationally and internationally, and participated in residencies in the U.S. and abroad.

Liz finds the conversations held between friends and family, food, gardening, baking bread, and spending time in her studio exploring the fertile grounds of functional pottery to continually actuate her lively imagination.
