STOCKTON —  Delta Center for the Arts L.H. Horton Jr. Gallery presents the 4th Annual Visions in Clay Exhibition and Awards Competition through Sept. 30 at the Delta College campus

The opening reception is planned for Thursday, Aug. 30, from 5  to 7  p.m. All events are free and open to the public.

Visions in Clay is the largest exhibition of ceramic works in the San Joaquin Valley. It is an exceptional show of craftsmanship and diversity of style through individual use of materials. In addition, the editor of Ceramics Monthly selected Visions In Clay as one of the top five ceramic exhibitions in the country.

This year’s exhibit features 57 artists’ work from around the country, including two from Stockton: Bruce Cadman and Ilena Finocchi. There are 70 pieces of ceramics on display, 

The Visions In Clay exhibition is the first of three shows for the Gallery’s Fall Season. The Fall exhibitions are discipline-based shows that focus on the primary arts curriculum of the Fine Art Division: ceramics, 2D–3D (painting, printmaking and sculpture), and Photography. This exhibition format brings in a large group of artists to present their work, providing greater exposure to diverse styles and media to Gallery audiences, thereby extending the educational and creative experience for our students.

 The L.H. Horton Jr. Gallery is located on the ground floor of Shima Center, and is wheelchair accessible. Admission is free and open to the public. Recommended parking is available in the Shima lot for a fee of $2. Tours are welcome and gallery talks may be addressed by contacting gallery director, Jan Marlese, at: (209) 954-5507, or
