The Clarke College Art Department is hosting an exhibit of ceramic art by Clarke senior Peter Toan Huynh, now through March 14 in Clarke’s Quigley Gallery. Admission to the exhibit is free and the public is invited to attend.
Huynh, a BFA candidate at Clarke who is also studying in the missionary program at Divine Word Seminary, created ceramic platters inspired by his faith for the exhibit titled “Serving Platters.” Huynh’s exhibit will feature a banquet-like setting with representation of various themes throughout his journey in both religious and artistic life.
In his artist statement for the exhibit, Huynh said “Serving Platters” represents his life of serving and the platters symbolize gathering people together. “Platters can serve as a metaphor to tell a story of my life – my journey to self-knowledge and to God,” he said. “I often mention to people that I live to serve; therefore platters are a great way for me to express my feelings to others.”
The Quigley Gallery is open Monday through Friday from noon-5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. For more information, contact the Clarke College Marketing and Communication Office at (563) 588-6318.
