POWELL, Wyo. - An exhibit of work by six ceramists from the Red Lodge Clay Center in Montana, opens Tuesday, Jan. 25, with an artists’ reception at 7:30 p.m. at Northwest Gallery in Powell.

This is the fourth year Red Lodge Clay Center ceramists have exhibited at NWC, bringing together artists with distinct styles from disparate parts of the country.

“NWC Presents—The Red Lodge Clay Center’s Current Resident Artists” is a combination of functional, decorative and installation ceramics that includes both wheel-thrown and hand-built pieces.

Featured artists are Allen Chen, Jonathan Fitz, Daniel Garretson and Brett Kern. Also contributing to the exhibit are Red Lodge Clay Center Executive Director David Hiltner and Programming and Facilities Coordinator Markus Urbanik.

Viewers will find a spectrum of work that stretches from functional to purely fun and from colorful to rustic.

The exhibit is displayed through Friday, Feb. 18, in Northwest Gallery. Located in the Cabre Building on the Northwest College campus, the gallery is open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays and Thursday evenings from 7-9 p.m. Admission is free.
