Students produce exhibit for ceramic art conference
Submitted By An Nguyen
Chabot College Art 9 Class prepares for their 5th journey to the annual California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art (CCACA) in Davis, California, on April 27 - 29. Also known as the Art Colloquium, students from Art 9 are comprised of student artists ranging from first-year art students to experienced artists in the ceramics community. They are led by their instructor Mr. Clayton Thiel, well-known Bay Area ceramics sculptor, who has also been invited to be featured in the "30 Artist Show" at the Natsoulas Gallery in Davis.
Art 9 students will represent Chabot College in a conference with over 40 colleges and universities from throughout California. Participant Pauline Cabello shares, "CCACA is a nationally recognized art show that features leading artists from around the world for a weekend of creative workshops, collaboration, and networking. It's an opportunity for students to showcase their artwork, gain hands-on experience designing, building, and curate an exhibit."
Art 9 Colloquium has no allocated budget and depends on students and contributions from the community. The students desire to represent Chabot College in the most professional manner possible and need financial support to afford the cost of the event, such as hotel rooms, food, attending conference lectures, as well as materials to build and light their exhibit. Students from Chabot College Art 9 are asking for community support in this endeavor. To pledge your support and learn more about Art 9, please visit the facebook page www.facebook.com/SoTAartclubChabot and look for information to contribute on the Information Page. All contributions, regardless of size or value, are greatly appreciated by the students of Chabot College.
Participant Mairead Roberts says, "We would appreciate any support, even if community members could pass our message along that would count for a lot."
