Art show accepting entries

By From page B6 | March 16, 2012

Sacramento artist, Tony Natsoulas, invites artists to participate and compete in works of clay in the second annual “Totems, Plates and Teapots,” sponsored by the Placer Community Foundation and Alpha Fired Arts and held at the Blue Line Gallery in Roseville.

“This show presents traditional forms in non-traditional ways,” said Natsoulas, curator for the exhibit. “Plates are presented as paintings, totems as contemporary sculpture and teapots as conversation and conventional use.”

The event includes an invitational selected by Natsoulas and a competition juried by Christy Johnson, executive director of the American Museum of Ceramic Art.

Natsoulas brings years of experience and was named by the Smithsonian as one of the top 100 craft artists in the United States, he has worked with and shown alongside some of the finest contemporary American artists of our time.

Rollin, Sandra Simon and Robert Brady, Alfred P. Spivak, MD, Camille Vanden Berge, Peter Vaden Berge, Cindy Wilson and Wesley Wright.
