Henderson artist Robin Stark discusses her ceramics featured in Carson at the Nevada Arts Council’s OXS Gallery in January at a free reception Thursday, January 23, hosted by the Nevada Arts Council. A recipient of a 2014 Nevada Arts Council Artist Fellowship, Stark received an Artist Fellowship Honorable Mention grant in 2006 and two Jackpot grants. She teaches ceramic arts at the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas.

“Robin Stark: Ceramic Reflections” represents a trend in which the artist’s ceramic forms become entirely sculptural. “The work fluctuates, presenting the viewer different considerations of what can be made in clay,” Stark said.

She earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Pennsylvania State University, State College and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Davis. Her work has been featured in 15 solo and several national invitational exhibits. Her collaborative community projects include The Whitney Ranch Tile Together Project, awarded project of the year by the City of Henderson, and the Cambridge Recreation Center Mural Project in Las Vegas.

The OXS-Office eXhibition Series is managed by the Artist Services Program of the Nevada Arts Council. The gallery features artists who have been recognized through the Artist Fellowship Program and exhibits from the NTI-Traveling Exhibition Program. The Arts Council is funded by the Nevada State Legislature and the National Endowment of the Arts. For more information, contact Fran Morrow at 775-687-7106.
