The exhibit, on display through Wednesday, December 14, features the work of six international clay artists: Gunilla Maria Akesson of Sweden, Marc Verbruggen and Ric Delrue of Belgium, Klaus Dorrmann and Sigrun Wassermann of Germany, and David Rodenberg of Evansville. In 1998, members of this group worked together in Evansville's sister city of Osnabruck, Germany to create a ceramic sculpture representing the essence of the Osnabruck Peace Rider as part of the 350-year Jubilee of the Peace of Westphalia.
Two of the exhibit's participants, Verbruggen and Rodenberg, will be at the reception. Light refreshments will be served.
Verbruggen will present a free illustrated lecture on his own work, as well as trends he has identified in contemporary European ceramic art, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 1, in Kleymeyer Hall in the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center. The public is invited to attend.
