The University of Tulsa, School of Art presents Red Heat Contemporary Works in Clay in the Alexandre Hogue Gallery September 27 through October 25. This biannual juried exhibit showcases contemporary ceramic work by artists from across the United States. The juror selected 45 to 60 ceramic pieces for the exhibit.
Heat is Oklahoma's only national juried ceramic exhibit and is a great opportunity for the TU Campus and Tulsa/Oklahoma art community to see contemporary ceramic work.
