“The NCECA show will give people a really nice view of what’s happening in ceramics, as far as new technologies go, and what artists are doing with them,” Arvada Center ceramics program coordinator Bebe Alexander says, adding that works in Earth Moves include pieces created using 3-D printers and motion-based projections. “And on the upper level, we show how traditions are still alive and changing today.”
The fall exhibitions open tonight with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Boulevard in Arvada, and continue daily through November 10. Also on view, in the Theater Gallery, is Nuestra Cultura: Our People, Our Heritage, featuring art and artifacts of Mexican culture from the Abarca Family Collection. A separate reception will highlight that show on September 19, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Admission is free; for more information, visit arvadacenter.org/galleries.
