A Regional Holiday Exhibition

 

A Regional Holiday Exhibition

Humboldt State University First Street Gallery is pleased to present A Regional Holiday Exhibition, which will open on November 29th and will continue through December 23rd.  Featured in the show will be artwork by thirty-two artists from California's North Coast, who work in diverse styles and mediums.
 
The participating artists will display ceramics, works on paper, sculpture, and paintings.  “We're very excited to bring together these artists, many of them HSU alumni, during this holiday season," says First Street Gallery Director Jack Bentley. "This exhibition will remind those of us who live here, how fortunate we are to live in a community that is also the home of so many wonderful artists."

Of special note, the exhibition will emphasize works by regional artists who are working in the ceramic medium, creating sculpture and functional forms (such as vases). The wider art world has long recognized California's North Coast as a center of innovation in ceramic art, largely catalyzed by the artists teaching and employed at Humboldt State University.  Four of those artists, Scott North, Louis Marak, Keith Schneider and Nancy Frazier, will have works featured prominently in the gallery. 

Other participants include: Heather Cruce, Kit Davenport, Fern Diller, Jane Fusek, Jorden Goodspeed, Amy Granfield, Nina Groth, Ruth A. Jensen, David Jordan, Alyse LaVerne, Peggy Loudon, Cat McAdams, Julie McNeil, Justin Mitman, Jake Mondragon, Lush Newton, Terry Oats, Mike Pearce, Tsuya Pratt, Norman Scherfield, Rachel Schlueter, Stock Schlueter, Keith Schneider, Seth Simpson, Hannah Stills, Shannon Sullivan, David White, Sarah Whorf and Brian Woida.

A Regional Holiday Exhibition is produced by Humboldt State students. Students enrolled in the Art Museum and Gallery Practices Program participate in the daily management and planning of shows at the gallery.  The gallery provides real-life opportunities for the students to develop their gallery and museum skills, which in turn provides them with experience that will help them to enter the job market. Many students who have participated in the program have gone on to careers in museums and galleries throughout the nation. 

Exhibition Schedule

The exhibition will run from November 29th through December 23rd.  There will be an opening reception for the artists that will coincide with Eureka’s Arts Alive program on Saturday December 3rd from 6-9pm.  HSU First Street Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 12-5 p.m. and is located at 422 First Street, Old Town, Eureka, California.  For more information call (707) 443-6363.
