Pleasant Valley branch shows ceramic wall art, sculptures
OGDEN -- Drawing and sculpture merge in an exhibit of work by Suzanne Storer on display in the Weber County Library's Pleasant Valley Branch.
Storer, of Ogden, is showing ceramic wall art and sculptural works. The wall pieces, which are plate-shaped, are covered with Storer's drawings. The sculptural pieces include works based on sketches of models Storer made at weekly community drawing sessions. The figurative ceramic works combine the curves of three-dimensional art with the lines of two-dimensional art.
The artwork can be seen 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays, through Feb. 28, at 5568 S. Adams Ave; a reception is set for 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 22.
