About the Event

From February 12 to March 20 the Center Art Gallery hosts the 2010 Alumni Ceramics Competition, featuring work by 16 Calvin Alumni. Held biennially, alumni exhibitions celebrate the work our alumni are creating and serve as a showcase for a particular medium that is taught in the Department of Art and Art History. This year the exhibition focuses on ceramics and was juried by Professor of Art, Anna Greidanus, who teaches all levels of ceramics and drawing at Calvin College.
