Central Visual Arts Gallery 

Houston Community College, Houston, Texas 

March 4 – April 6, 2019


ClayHouston's Regional Juried Exhibition, TIMELESS CLAY: Future Artifacts features unique ceramic pieces from today, which will become the artifacts of the future.  The exhibition showcases a wide variety of contemporary ceramic works by artists from Arizona, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. From beautiful functional pottery to thought-provoking sculptural works, the exhibit presents an astounding array of art demonstrating the versatility and beauty of the ceramic medium.

Juror: Jennifer Ling Datchuk

Jennifer Ling Datchuk was born in Warren, Ohio and currently lives and works in San Antonio, Texas. 

As the child of a Chinese immigrant and grandchild of Russian and Irish immigrants, the family histories of conflict she has inherited are a perpetual source for her work. She captures this conflict by exploring the emotive power of domestic objects and rituals that fix, organize, soothe, and beautify our lives. 

Trained in ceramics, her works often use a myriad of materials ranging from porcelain to fabric or embroidery. Datchuk holds an MFA in Artisanry from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and a BFA in Crafts from Kent State University. She has received grants from the Artist Foundation of San Antonio as well as Artpace to research the birthplace of porcelain in Jingdezhen, China.
