Franklyn Phillips: “Pyrometrics”
A Retrospective in Ceramics

Tue, October 28 – Sat, December 6

Join us for a look at the creative works of Franklyn Phillips, who heads the Ceramics program at SMC, and has continued to redefine himself for the past 50 years as a professional studio artist, ceramic sculptor, and ceramic painter. His earlier large-scale sculptures were influenced by studies in biology and comparative anatomy, while later ceramic paintings and sculptures evolved as expressions of his growing involvement with the mysteries of meditation, metamorphosis, and the hidden drama of nature.

Artist reception on Saturday, October 25, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

Gallery closed November 11 and 27-29.
