Immerse In Art

The Gallery acts as a focal point for ideas presented in all manner of styles, which operate on both intellectual and tangible levels. This availability of art is not only an important aspect of culture for the broader community who view it, but also a valuable part of maintaining a healthy collegial environment for the CBC campus community.

The Esvelt Gallery brings art from visiting artists, faculty, and students through sponsorship from ASCBC and the Art Department. Our desire is to provide an artistic experience through a variety of exhibitions, artist lectures, workshops, and demonstrations, all of which are open to the student body and the public.

Admission is free and the public is welcome.

Stephen Robison works primarily in ceramics, but their three
decades as a professor has allowed them to use many materials to convey meaning in their work. Currently, they are working on neck pieces, wall, and pedestal works. This work combines colored porcelains, (usually directed in the creation of fictious flowers), stoneware clay and low fire clay forms that are fired in oxidation, high fire reduction atmospheres and in wood fired kilns to obtain
specific surfaces and colors. They incorporate kiln formed glass and/or blown glass forms along with metal and vacuum formed plastics. 

 Stephen Robison has an MFA from the University of Iowa and a BFA from the University of Wisconsin. Robison has participated
in numerous national and international artist in residence programs including, but not limited to, the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana, Appalachian Center for Crafts in Smithville, Tennessee, Watershed Center for Ceramics Arts
in Newcastle, Maine, and Guldagergaard – International Ceramic Research Center, in Skælskør, Denmark. They are currently an Associate Professor at Central Washington University in
Ellensburg, Washington. 

The Esvelt Gallery would like to thank the ASCBC for their support.
