Did You Ever See…? Word & Image Arts in Education Partnership (November 1 – April 15, 2018)
Each year, students are challenged to create works of art based on a theme and to incorporate a written statement within the piece. Limited only by their imaginations, these children’s creations are sometimes hilarious, often heartfelt, and always extraordinary.

Jeremy Randall Solo Show at the Morean Center for Clay (On view through November 30) Randall’s references to rural American architecture and antique rural implements places the viewer in a familiar setting that is layered with time, function and history.

Tampa Tour de Clay at the Morean Center for Clay (On view through November 28) An annual, self-guided studio tour featuring five Tampa Bay area clay studios and the works of 35 clay artists. The Morean Center for Clay is proud to partner with Tour de Clay by exhibiting one piece from each artist in our galleries.

Ethan Stern: Inscribing Surfaces; in partnership with the Traver Gallery (On view through January 31 at the Chihuly Collection) Stern describes his work, “Unlike the cut glass vessels of the past, these sculptures are not vessels designed to hold things but containers to hold light.” Stern’s mark making is a deliberate manipulation of light affecting his artwork. A combination of clear cut glass and colored glass sculptures present this exploration of Stern’s interest into mark making and its expression within the form.
