Chadima Gallery Exhibitions

The Resident Artist program at ICCGS, provides emerging ceramic artists with space, facilities, time, and professional interactions that will develop their ideas, skills, abilities, and help them focus as ceramic artists.

Resident Artist Galleries

Our Annual Resident Artist Gallery Series features an opening reception every 1st Thursday in May, June, and July for each of our Resident Artists. We invite you to stop in from 5:30pm-7:00pm to view their exhibit in the Chadima Gallery, and learn more about their work during their Artist Talks beginning at 6:00 pm, where they will each discuss their work and process. Each Resident Artist’s works will remain in the Gallery through the end of each month. 

Sense of Joy

Artist: Emma Burnett

Show Title: Sense of Joy

Opening Reception: June 6th

Time: 5:30-7:30, with an artist talk beginning at 6pm. Work will remain in the Chadima gallery through June 29th.

About the Show: “Sense of Joy” is an interactive exhibit of ceramic sculptures made to delight each of the five senses. Visitors to this show are encouraged to not only visually admire the works of art, but also to explore and discover their functions in relation to taste, sound, touch and smell. While these pieces have practical uses (some more so than others…) , their true function is to create whimsy, surprise, and joy.

Connections in Flame

Artist: Jennifer Hatch

Show Title: Connections in Flame

Opening Reception: July 11th

Time: 5:30-7:30, with an artist talk beginning at 6pm. Work will remain in the Chadima gallery through July 27th.

About the Show: In “Connections in Flames”, Jennifer shows how her childhood drawings of flames have evolved over time to influence her current work in clay. Multiple connections throughout the exhibition will illustrate her journey and growth as both an artist and potter. Flames can be found in both her functional work and tilework, depicting images from nature. Flames become roots and limbs of trees, petals of flowers, and leaves of vines. The connections also spread non-linearly to include ideas of firing, glasswork, memory, past work, and nature.
