What’s at the gallery now?

Currently on display in the gallery through October 18 is a show by former White Mountain resident and NPC graduate, Jessica Penrod, featuring artistic “vessels” of functionality and beauty.

Penrod, who currently works for the highly acclaimed Hanselmann Pottery studio in Corrales, N.M., went on to graduate with honors with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts with an emphasis in ceramics from the University of New Mexico. She draws inspiration from the landscapes and backdrops of the places where she has lived. The exhibit displays many creations exposing earthy and unique surfaces inspired by the outdoors and her roots in the White Mountains. Her textures and tones derive influence from New Mexico’s diversity and natural tinting. Each piece acts as a canvas for objects that inspire memories of the things we enjoy in nature and the feelings and experiences they bring into our lives.

Penrod’s solo exhibit concludes with a free public reception on Friday, October 18, at 5 p.m. at the Talon Gallery.

The Talon Gallery is located in the Aspen Center on NPC’s Show Low – White Mountain Campus, 1001 W. Deuce of Clubs. The gallery is open to the public Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Fridays, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is closed on weekends and college holidays.
