Known for exhibiting painting and drawing, the Art Club of St. Petersburg displayed the first sculptural work in 1958, the 30th year of that organization. In the early 1990s and again in 2000, local potter Russ Gustafson-Hilton brought nationally-recognized artists in the field of ceramics to our gallery. Independent curator and former Morean staff member Melissa Yungbluth carries on the tradition by inviting nearly 25 artists from across the country to share their latest works with our community. Though differing in style and studio practice, these cutting-edge artists all demonstrate how this ancient medium is still relevant, with connections to social media, podcasts, collaborations with retailers, and more. Participating artists include: Jennifer Allen, Dan Anderson, Blair Clemo, Sunshine Cobb, Russ Gustafson-Hilton, John Glick, Brian Harper (pictured), Bryan Hopkins, Meredith Host, Randy Johnston, Brian R. Jones, Karen Karnes, Gail Kendall, Suze Lindsay, Lindsay Oesterritter, Jeff Oestreich, Kip O’Krongly, Doug Peltzman, Greg Pugh, Emily Schroeder Willis, Deborah Schwartzkopf, David Shaner, and Shawn Spangler.
