Maude Kerns Art Center’s “Inspired Instructors: Works by Maude Kerns Art Educators” opens on Friday, May 22. The exhibit, which features the wide-ranging work of 16 of the Art Center’s exceptional instructors, is an opportunity not only to support these individual artists, but also to showcase what they offer to our community as art educators. “Inspired Instructors” is on view through Friday, June 26.

“Inspired Instructors” includes the work of Amy Albrecht, Mika Aono, Taro Baugnon, Kate Bollons, Barbara Counsil, Carolyn Gates, Shelby Lynn Harvey, Cooper Jeppeson, Linda LaVie, Rogene Mañas, Krista Raasch, Christopher St. John, Sarah Sedwick, Sara Smith Spahn, Craig Spilman, and Jordan K. Walker.

The artwork in “Inspired Instructors” – 67 pieces in all - ranges in style from realistic to abstract, from colorful to monochrome, introspective to exuberant. The mediums, which are as diverse as the creators, include ceramics, pen & ink, oil, acrylic, watercolor, textiles, printmaking, graphite drawings, and paperclay. Below is a brief summary of the kind of work each artist is exhibiting.
