This exhibition is the third installment of the biennial juried exhibition of ceramic artwork, Central Time Ceramics. Produced by Bradley University this exhibition has been generously funded in part by Robert Freeland.  The show brings together ceramic artwork from across the Central Time Zone to a city not only centrally located but also commonly associated with the central United States: Peoria, Illinois. Assembled in Peoria at the Bradley University Galleries are 55 ceramic works by 37 artists living and working in the Central Time Zone. From Minnesota to Texas, the locales represented are as varied as each artist’s aesthetic, yet the level of craftsmanship and innovation remains high throughout.

“Central” often refers to being in the middle, inferring sameness or mediocrity, yet the multiplicity of styles, methods and materials in this exhibition is anything but. Delores Fortuna, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Ceramics at the SAIC has superbly selected a diverse group of work full of color, technical expertise, and experimentation. This exhibition may be centrally located yet it depicts The Central Time Zone as a multifarious region including diverse perspectives on the materials, methods, and styles of contemporary ceramic art. Bradley University Galleries is proud to announce the following artists will be exhibiting in the 3rd Biennial Central Time Ceramics juried exhibition;
