Guilford Art Center will stage an exhibition of the ceramic works of Jasmine Gonzalez, the center’s resident potter since January 2015. The exhibition is on view in the gallery Friday, Aug. 12 through Sunday, Sept. 4, with a closing reception on Thursday, Septe. 1, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Gonzalez creates functional pottery as well as more conceptual works. She is using both high fire and low fire clay in electric and atmospheric firing processes at Guilford Art Center as well as incorporating some other media such as wood, wire, sea shells, and plants to accentuate her work.

Gonzalez received her bachelor of fine arts from the University of Hartford, Hartford Art School in 2014, with a major in ceramics and sculpture and a minor in art history. She has been the first person to serve in the newly created resident potter position, and this exhibition is the culmination of her work during her time at the center. In her capacity, Gonzalez has been responsible for working with pottery students, overseeing the facility’s studio practice times, and providing inspiration through her presence and her own creativity. The position is designed to provide the resident with time and space to develop art while contributing to the workings of a communal pottery studio.

“Make every thing you touch like it’s the last thing you’ll make...and make it for the whole world to see it,” says Gonzalez.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. Guilford Art Center Gallery and Shop hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday noon to 4 p.m.
