The Back House Gallery at Heebe Jeebe in historic downtown Petaluma has added a series of "Pop-Up Gallery Events" to its ongoing regular art shows. All proceeds go directly to the artists and all sales will be handled directly by them. The shows will only run for a short time so come see them quickly or miss out!
First show this spring features Petaluma ceramicist of international acclaim: Nuala Creed. Born in Dublin Ireland, Nuala moved to the US as a young adult. In her late thirties she took her first clay class and was seduced by it. In 1999 she earned a BFA with high distinction from California College of the Arts. Since then her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, in Korea, Finland, France, Hungary, and Ireland.
She has received many awards for her work, which is represented in both private and public collections, such as Pro Artibus Foundation Collection, Finland. For the past few years she has been working on a collection of ceramic figures for the Internet Archive in San Francisco. To date there are 100 of them exhibited in the Great Room of The Archive.
Her work is included in many books, such as Ceramics and The Human Figure, by Edith Garcia, Confrontational Ceramics by Judith Schwartz, 500 Figures in Clay, by Lark Books. Articles about her work appear in several art magazines, which include Ceramics Art and Perception, Ceramics Monthly and Ceramics Ireland.
Nuala has completed four public ceramic murals. Click here to see a gallery of Nuala's work.
Opening is March 4th, 2017 at 5pm. The show will run for 11 days, closing March 13th.
