Opening Reception for Jacob Grant- Friday February 4th (6-830pm)
Jacob Grant is a central Illinois ceramicist. He graduated with a Masters degree of Fine Art from Bradley University. He has taught at The Peoria Art Guild, Illinois Central College, Bradley University and Robert Morris College. His work has been widely shown in Chicago, IL., Rend Lake, IL., Peoria Heights, IL., and St. Louis, MO.
Grant states, "I am curious about exploration of formal qualities of the vessel and volumetric sculptural objects. Inter-relational ties between functional and sculptural art through researching basic aspects of form are the primary concerns in my work. The vessels and volumetric sculptures I create examine the line between pragmatism and pure sculpture. "
Please join us in supporting our local artist, Jacob Grant, on this evening. It's free and light refreshments will be provided.
