    Submerged
    Artists: Natasha Dikareva, Bar Shacterman and Carol Wedemeyer  

    Submerged highlights the work of Natasha Dikareva, Bar Shacterman and
    Carol Wedemeyer; three artists who use clay to engage with the primordial,
    mythological and metaphorical place that water holds in the human psyche.
    Bringing surreal and fluid images to the surface, ideas and feelings
    submerged in the subconscious are pulled up and given a physical
    dimension.

    Artists: Paula Wenzl Bellacera & Joseph Bellacera

    Paula and Joe admired each other’s artwork even before they met. At that
    and and hhasas followed different paths. Paula fell for the plasticity of the
    ceramic. 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.

Exhibition May 1 – 30, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday May 1st, 6-9pm

Clay: a chancy act of
prolonged engagement

Artists:Steven Allen, Jennifer Brazelton, Monique Castiaux,
Natasha Dikareva, Alex Hackworth, Lori Koenig,
John Richard Lloyd, Nikki Lau, Maggie Malloy,
Tomoko Nakazato, Oli Quezada, Bar Shacterman,
Tiffany Schmierer

SMAart Gallery & Studio is pleased to present the third annual
group exhibit curated by artist/curator Maggie Malloy.

Curator's Statement:  Making art is chancy; it doesn’t mix well
with predictability.  Uncertainty and risk-taking for the artist is the
essential, inevitable companion to desire in making art. ‘Making’;
is a process that tells the artist what they are thinking, hearing,
and having it make sense. It is a process of constantly going back
& forth, doubting and testing. Doubt is a form of intelligence. It
becomes feedback of the vision. What the artist knows about their
current work is contained in the last work. Fingerprints are all
over the work and trace the willingness to embrace the obstacle
of uncertainties. The chancy act of prolonged engagement often
becomes the artist’s statement.

Exhibition July 1– 26, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday July 3rd, 6-9pm
