The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art and the Central Coast Craftmakers are pleased to present Dimensions, a biennial exhibition of fine craft featuring artworks created from clay, fiber, glass, metal, paper, and wood by artists living in California.
This always popular exhibition will be on view in the Museum’s Gray Wing through mid-February.
Dimensions received over 130 artwork submissions, of which 51 were juried into the exhibition. This year’s Dimensions features artwork by many artists never previously shown at the Museum, as well as 13 artist members of SLOMA with artwork in this exhibition.
A public reception with the artists and juror will take place on Friday, January 5 from 6-9pm in conjunction with Art After Dark.
This year’s juror is Peggy Sivert Zask, who currently operates the Zask Gallery in Rancho Palos Verdes as well as serving as an important figure in the founding of South Bay Contemporary Art Museum. She was educated at CSU Long Beach and CSU Dominguez Hills. She has taught art at Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach and has exhibited her art throughout Los Angeles as well as across the nation.
The artwork of Peggy Sivert Zask begins with traditional materials like clay, wood, metal or canvas. Strongly conscious of the environmental impact of consumption, she chooses to work with found objects or reworks existing artworks rather than starting with new materials.
