The clay medium is highlighted in the first Archer Gallery exhibition of 2009, Beasts & Botanicals. Bringing together ceramic artists from the region as well as the East Coast, Midwest, and Southwest, the exhibition demonstrates the myriad approaches to the medium and subject.

Beasts & Botanicals – a group ceramic exhibition focusing on the natural world of plants and animals. Featuring work by regional and national artists Susan Beiner, Ying-Yueh Chuang, Kelly Connole, Michael Fujita, Ayumi Horie, Roxanne Jackson, Kathleen Royster-Lamb, Jeffry Mitchell, Julie Tesser, and Ted Vogel.

Encompassing an expressive range from a light-hearted and whimsical touch to an edgier, aggressive stance, the artists’ approach to the plant and animal world is reflective of their artistic goals and material explorations.
