Growing Season

Jennifer Gross’s latest solo exhibition “Garden Delights” on view at Practical Art this month may or may not be a reference the infamous Hieronymus Bosch triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights. But Gross and Bosch do share a slight inclination towards the bizarre and an ability to bring their visions to life by paying special attention to detail.

Gross is primarily a ceramicist, but her background in drawing and painting is immediately evident looking at her work. The surfaces of her ceramic pieces pop with colorful illustrations that really make the three-dimensional objects come to life.

The opening reception for “Garden Delights” will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on First Friday, August 1, at Practical Art, 5070 North Central Avenue. The exhibition will remain on view through Sunday, August 31. For more information, visit or call 602-264-1414.

Fri., Aug. 1, 7-9 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Mondays-Fridays, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Starts: Aug. 1. Continues through Aug. 29, 2014
