Kazuma Sambe Work by Kazuma Sambe featured in "TCA Juried Biennial: Clay" exhibition.

Eric Boos set three green pear shapes inside a bright pink vessel with four legs, giving bowls a whimsical new twist for the juried biennial "CLAY” exhibition at The Gallery at Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 West Rio Salado Parkway, which opens on Friday, September 30. Kazuma Sambe placed suckling piglets in vintage flour sacks.

They’re two of more than 20 artists showing functional and decorative pieces made with various forms of clay, a medium Garth Johnson associates with a mischievous sense of humor. Curator for the ASU Art Museum’s Ceramics Research Center, Johnson is one of four jurors for the “CLAY” show, which features primarily metro Phoenix artists, including Danielle Wood, Christine Cassano, Jeff Reich, and Constance McBride.

See their work and enjoy light refreshments during the free opening reception with national artist Patsy Cox, happening from 6 to 9 p.m. Then check out workshops happening soon. Visit www.tempe.gov.
