2013 Ceramics From the Kolva-Sullivan Collection

Winter Exhibition

Exhibition: January 8 – March 30, 2013
Reception: Thursday, January 17, 6-8 pm, MOA Gallery
Lecture: Jan. 17, 7pm CUB AUD

The Jim Kolva and Pat Sullivan collection is a comprehensive sampling of Northwest ceramic artists. Having owned and operated a gallery in Spokane, Washington, for many years, Kolva and Sullivan have built a proverbial “who’s who” collection of northwest ceramic art. The Kolva-Sullivan Gallery, housed in a great industrial warehouse space, along with its “Soho style” loft residence, has presented many exhibits that include a ceramics emphasis and new work by emerging artists. Many of these artists are alumni of the Archie Bray Foundation.

The Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts is an educational institution located near Helena, Montana. Some of the best ceramic artists working in the United States today have graduated from the creative experience offered at Archie Bray. This exhibit will provide yet another dimension of the artistic treasures the Northwest has to offer.
