The Maude Kerns Art Center presents the 30th annual Art for All Seasons Membership Show and Club Mud Ceramics Holiday Show & Sale, opening on Friday, November 18, with a Reception from 5 – 7 pm, and on view through Friday, December 16.

The Art for All Seasons Membership Show and Club Mud Ceramics Show & Sale is the Maude Kerns Art Center's largest exhibit of the year. The annual Membership Exhibit provides a venue for both emerging and established artists. The exhibit offers a perfect opportunity to purchase unique, original artwork by local artists. Artwork is available in many price ranges, ideal for holiday gifts.

In 2022 the varied and diverse artistry of over 160 member artists fills the galleries. Art for All Seasons features paintings, drawings, watercolors, prints, photography, plaster work, metal, and clay sculpture, jewelry, hooked wool fiber art, mixed media, and art quilts. Members of Club Mud, the Center’s onsite ceramics cooperative, exhibit functional and decorative pottery, sculpture, and wall pieces.

Karen Russo shows two ceramic sculptures in Art for Seasons, Keeping the Balance and Willow Waltz from her “Sweetness in the Belly” collection. Distinguished by graceful lines and delicate detailing, her “tree women” sculptures represent a confluence of the feminine and nature. Russo was inspired to create the pieces when she observed the resilience of the trees on her property after a severe snow and ice storm. When the ice finally melted, the trees stood tall.

Virginia Mae Sands shows one large work drawn in prismacolor pencil titled Saturn Marbles. Sands, who has a background in painting and drawing as well as neon sign glassblowing, is attracted to reflective surfaces and objects made of glass. She enjoys how glass changes the shape of backgrounds. In her still life drawing, the two marbles pick up the patterns of the background and reflections from a lamp and a chandelier in an intriguing melange of shapes and forms.

Rakar West exhibits Daydreaming III, an oil and cold wax on canvas abstract painting. The delicate, gestural marks, subtle texture, rich color, and layering effects achieved by the medium make the work a kind of visual meditation, what West refers to as an “expression of the inner life.” By embedding and revealing symbols and varying between flat and layered surfaces, West “causes the viewer’s attention to shift between the referential and the purely abstract.”
