Greg Roberts Ceramics at SNC thru Feb 20

San Francisco-based artist Gregory Roberts will be exhibiting a collection of his work, entitled “Suck on This,” at the Tahoe Gallery at Sierra Nevada College through February 20.

And on Thursday, January 29, 2009, Roberts will give a lecture on his work at 5:15pm in the Prim Library, room 320, which will be followed by a reception at the Tahoe Gallery. The public is invited to attend both of these free events; light refreshments will be provided.

Roberts began his journey in ceramics at the age of 14, going on to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Mills College in Oakland, Calif., and a Master of Fine Arts at Alfred University in New York. His work has been featured in Ceramics Art and Perception, American Craft Magazine, Artweek, and Ceramics Monthly Magazine. The show at SNC will be a look at Roberts’s most recent ceramic work, which ranges from honeycomb-textured teapots to politically charged newspaper images and metallic surface treatments.

The pieces, which make use of both traditional and contemporary practices, are made of the traditional ceramic material of clay, but the presentation of the works are interactive and sculptural. At first glance, the pieces resemble the plastic water bottles that are so ubiquitous today, but a closer look reveals surface images that appear to be political figures, with titles such as as “People at Podiums,” “Hunt for Red October,” and “Baby Bottle Bombs.”

Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. For more information, please contact Tahoe Gallery Coordinator Kat Hutter at 775.831.1314, x7525 or khutter@sierranevada.edu.
