    Works represented in this exhibition encompass an array of processes that illustrate the diversity of the medium, including: traditional wheel thrown and hand built vessels, contemporary figure sculptures, and experimental ceramic forms.

    The postbaccalaureate program is a year of independent study, exploration, and personal style development under the guidance of UF Ceramics Professors Anna Callouri Holcombe and Nan Smith. Originating from throughout the southeast, the seven exhibiting artists who makeup this year’s class, will be displaying their efforts in Ephemeraas a conclusion to their year of study at the University of Florida. The public will have the opportunity meet the artists and discuss their work at the reception on Saturday evening. Several of the artists in this year’s postbaccalaureate class will continue their education in master of fine arts programs nationally, while others will teach in local secondary schools, and maintain independent art studios.
