This exhibition celebrates art in all its forms, showcasing submissions that have been hand-picked by our juror from the community. We welcome any medium for display in our galleries this winter.

JUROR: Riley Strong

Abington Art Center’s kiln technician and a ceramics instructor. After being awarded summer assistantships with Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in both 2017 and 2018, Riley graduated with a BFA in Sculpture from Union University in 2019. In the Fall, she began her 2019-2020 Residency at Worcester Center for Craft in the Ceramics Department, where she has explored clay as a sculptural medium as well as teaching in the adult and youth programs offered at the craft center. Through the circumstances of COVID-19, Riley was able to continue producing work after being awarded a grant from the Worcester Cultural Coalition.
