  • We hope you were able to visit our opening reception last week for "Summer Exhibition"! If you weren't able to visit, @thegallerylic is open daily from 9am-9pm at @thefactorylic and this show will close on July 26th.

We are also having an open call for the next show to go up titled, "Burn This". The idea for this show was inspired by the title of an incredible Lanford Wilson play that features Pale, a truly volcanic character. We are looking for all kind of work [including performances] that utilizes or represents heat. Work created using welding, heat transfer, flame, acid, lasers or just representations or images of the aftermath of flames, fusion, and heat.  Therefore all ceramics or work that is 'fired' is eligible.  Laser etching would also be eligible.
