Forget function! Clay is a material that you can carve, flatten, squeeze, fold, shape, mold, or extrude (think pasta machine). At BAC this month, five accomplished artists exhibit the endless sculptural possibilities of clay.
Wally Bivins, John Ellefson, Laurel Lukaszewski, Larry Halvorsen, and Liza Halvorsen.

Gregory Kono: Kite Maker
Trained in traditional Japanese kite-making, Gregory Kono believes that a kite doesn’t have a soul until it is flown. His beautiful contemporary kites will hover at BAC this month – each with a flight record. The perfect summer art.
