Clay:
tell-tale signs of
connected(ness)

Artistic influence and inspiration can be a tricky
thing. Often artists are asked: where does
your  visual inspiration come from? Not easily
answered. This exhibition examines the tell-tale
signs of other artists (dead or alive)
connecting of thoughts, ideas and feelings  
that have influence in  our present art works.

In some cases, the inspiration might be straight
forward, stemming cleanly from a favorite
artist(s). In some cases, the influence is
unannounced and un
aware of the kindred
message connecting in the mind.

Tracing signs of connected(ness) in clay
sculpture will be high- lighted by  12 Bay Area
established artists during the Fourth  Annual
Group Show. Curator  Statement: Maggie
Malloy
