Date: January 28, 9:00 am
Location: The Art Center
Details: Sponsored by Chuck and Patti Shear 

Terry Shepherd, The Art Center’s artist in residence, will be exhibiting a variety of clay work in what has become an annual tradition. Terry has also invited local artist, Heather Patterson, to show a selection of her paintings as his guest artist. 
Terry will be showing clay works which include stoneware, porcelain, raku, salt vapor and saggar fired work. This year Terry will have several examples of his black stoneware with lively crawl glaze designs in the form of wall platters and for the first time a few “clay paintings” fired in salt vapor process with flashing slips. Terry continues to explore the serendipitous qualities of fire and vapor induced embellishments on clay in the spirit of “An uncertain End with Confident Means”. 
Terry has been developing and teaching The Art Center’s ceramic curriculum since 1984; on staff as Ceramics Resident Artist since 1993. Previously he operated Shepherd Clay Studio in El Jebel, Colorado from 1972 to 1983. His work is in many private and public collections. In September Terry was awarded 1st place and 2nd place in the professional pottery category at the 51st annual Glenwood Springs Fall Art exhibit. 
Heather Patterson is a Professor of Art, Painting, at Colorado Mesa University. She received a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Painting from the University of California, Berkeley. Her work has been included in many solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Patterson’s work is included in various private and public collections. Currently, she is represented by Stephanie Breitbard Fine Arts in San Francisco, CA, Fresh Paint Art Advisors in Culver City, CA, Susan Street Gallery in Solana Beach, CA, and Tercera Gallery in Palo Alto, CA. 

Heather PattersonHeather Patterson’s work intuitively gathers imagery from both the natural and built environments. She recreates geographic patterns and forms, layering them to invent new series of systemic landscapes. This morphing of forms combines imagery such as computer generated weather charts, topographic maps, pixelated natural landscapes, cellular structures, networking graphs, and blueprints of structural elements. Patterson layers a variety of media through drawing, painting, and collaging to create multi-sensory experience. This interaction of the materials becomes an integral part of her process. She allows the contrasting substances to mix randomly in areas while manipulating other areas by carving, dripping, melting, taping, or spraying the surface. 

Opening/Reception is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 9am - 4pm. Admission is $3 for non-members. Admission is free for members, all students with current student ID, and children under 12. Tuesdays are always free thanks to Allied Insurance and Home Loan Investments.
