Memories and storytelling go hand in hand. Layer personally symbolic imagery using ceramic printmaking techniques to create a narrative vessel and examine how Shaping Memories: Expressions in Clay artists Ehren Tool and Hollie Lyko use layers to obscure and reveal their own recollections.

11:00 AM-3:00 PM
Discover how Shaping Memories: Expressions in Clay artists Jiha Moon and Roberto Lugo use the language of form, color, and texture to illuminate facets of their personal and cultural identity.
