Columbia Art Center Hosting Five Exhibits From October Through December

CA Logo 4Pottery, clay, collage and fabric are among the media being spotlighted this October, November and December at Columbia Association’s (CA) Columbia Art Center.

The five upcoming exhibits are:

  • Oct. 10-Nov. 1: “The Craft of Composition: Ryan Greenheck.” Greenheck describes his elegant functional pottery as coming from sensitivity in the glazing process, with the design conveying a satisfying form. He studied at SUNY College of Ceramics at Alfred University, the University of Wisconsin-Stout, and was a visiting artist at Shanghai University in China.

  • Oct. 10-Nov. 1: “50 Years in Clay: Joe Vitek.” This retrospective exhibition spotlights Vitek, who has spent decades as a potter and teacher. Vitek’s work has taken him abroad; he has set up studios and worked in Guam, Japan and Palau.   Presently he teaches ceramics classes at the Columbia Association Art Center.

  • Nov. 7-Dec. 1: “The Sum and Its Parts: Deborah Berman.” Berman’s imaginative collages translate nature, color and shapes using homemade paper, magazine and book images and text, ink and paint. She has worked at museums such as the Guggenheim, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, the Corcoran Gallery and College of Art, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

    • A reception for this exhibit will be held on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 4-6 p.m.

  • Nov. 7-Dec. 1: “Celebration of Women Through Faces in Fabric: Eileen Williams.” Williams’ exhibit demonstrates that women are like fabric in all colors and textures. This Maryland artist’s works strive to show what women have accomplished through their integrity, purpose, strength and inner beauty. Female faces are made in fabric form; the fabric is stretched over a wooden frame, canvas-style, and then layered with additional fabric and mixed media elements.

    • A reception for this exhibit will be held on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 4-6 p.m.

  • Dec. 12-Dec. 21: “Singular Sensations: Annual Holiday Exhibition.” A holiday exhibition featuring fine artwork in all media priced for sale at $150 or below. A gala reception for this exhibit will be held on Thursday, Dec. 12, from 6-8 p.m.
