The theme refers to the concept of travel: what we see, where we go, what we experience. Artists are encouraged to include scenes from their own travels (areas outside of Missouri and Illinois please) or images/pieces that describe for the viewer a concept related to travel (maps, compasses, etc.) What does travel mean to you? Where does it take you?

It must be a human instinct to create with mud. Ancient civilizations around the globe seemed to reach the same conclusion about this resource at various times in history. If you take earth, wet it, shape it, and fire it, something useful, beautiful, and elemental is formed. From this invention, mud bricks, drinking vessels, and sculptures were created. With Ceramic Centric, we seek to celebrate how current artists translate this ancient medium. The artwork in this exhibition will be comprised primarily of clay. As creating with this medium is not limited to the three dimensional, half of the show will display wall hanging ceramic works.
