    Cosmic Compulsions and
    Animated Animals
    Artists: Paula Wenzl Bellacera & Joseph Bellacera

    Paula and Joe admired each other’s artwork even before they met. At that time
    both were showing landscapes. As a couple, their work has matured, and has
    followed different paths. Paula fell for the plasticity of the ceramic. Her
    sculptures express whimsical human emotion and personalities embodied in
    the form of animals. Joe broadened his interests to create a synthesis of
    elements from the most mundane to the most elegant configurations of the
    macro and micro. These varied arrangements have become what he calls
    “visual poems.”

    On The Edge
    Artists: Lizzie Helbig, Evan Hobart, Anthony Magnetti, Nick
    Schwartz, Hannah Meredith, Mark Jaeger, Jessica
    Thompson and Suzanne Lussier

    Curator: Evan Hobart

    On the Edge surveys the work of 8 ceramic artists created
    during the last eight months while working at the
    Mendocino Art Center and Flynn Creek Potteries. They
    came from all over the country in September, 2013, and a
    synergy soon formed with a melding of ideas, new
    techniques and innovative spirit that has helped these
    artists take their work to the edge of creative expression.
    Each artist brought their own unique perspective and a
    focal range from content and narrative to form and firing
    techniques.

    On the Edge is an up close observation of their best works
    created while at the Mendocino Art Center in conjunction
    with Flynn Creek Potteries.  This show seeks to explore the
    interweaving of the artists ideas, techniques and art works
    as they share a common experience and become part of a
    California’s rich ceramic legacy.

    Tom Bartel: New Work
    Artists: Tom Bartel
    SMAart Gallery & Studio is pleased to present Tom Bartel: New Work, a solo
    exhibit by Ohio based artist Tom Bartel. His sculpture is a strange yet seductive
    use of the human form that explores sexuality, aging and gender that challenge
    our ideas of beauty.
