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 unware 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
