Third Street Gallery archive: 2014 Exhibitions: A Holiday Exhibition


Humboldt State University First Street Gallery is pleased to present A Holiday Exhibition, which will open on November 25 and will continue through December 23.  Featured in the show will be artwork by fifteen artists who work in diverse styles and mediums.
The participating artists will display ceramics, 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."

The exhibition will feature a number of talented artists in the ceramic medium. These prominent ceramics artists continue to place California’s North Coast as a center of innovation in ceramic art. Beautiful and unique works will include artists such as Nancy Frazier and Ted Okell, Kit Davenport, Peggy Loudon, Scott North, Clarissa Pezone, David Jordan and Mike Pearce.

Additional artists participating this winter will contribute a wide range of artistic styles that create an overall lighthearted tenor to this holiday exhibition. Many of the works freely use colorful color with abandon and employ unique approaches to their subjects. These include works by Cija Bellis, Lush Newton, Malia Penhall, Clark Donovan, Jeremy Hara, Mimi LaPlant, Rachel Schlueter and Gwen Thoele.

There will be a gallery reception for the artists, whichwill take place at HSU First Street Gallery on December 6 from 6-9 p.m. during Eureka’s Arts Alive program. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. and is located at 422 First Street, Eureka, California. Admission is free.
