The exhibition features an exciting selection of work by eight emerging US-based artists, all UMass Dartmouth alumni, whose works in ceramic are daring and diverse, and represent a growing expanse of ceramic direction. Artists include Birdie Boone, Dawn Stetzel, Claire Hedden, Colleen Toledano, Ryan Blackwell, Lauren Mayer, David Katz and Matt Ziemke.
