A juried exhibition of cermaic artwork from the Central Time Zone presented by Bradley University. This exhibition will be held on campus at Bradley University at Heuser Art Gallery and Hartmann Center Gallery in the spring of 2024.
The juror for the 8th Central Time Ceramics exhibition will be Janis Mars Wunderlich. Wunderlich grew up in Kent, Ohio in a Mormon family of ten children. She has a BFA from Brigham Young University and an MFA from The Ohio State University. Her detailed ceramic sculptures capture the dualities and complexities of being human, inspired by historical ceramic figurines and from her Cherokee-storyteller-step-grandfather Edwin George. Wunderlich?s sculptures are in exhibitions and museum collections throughout the world, including Yingge Ceramic Museum in Taiwan and The American Museum of Ceramic Art in CA. She is the recipient of many awards including an Illinois Arts Council Fellowship, Ohio Arts Council Grants, Greater Columbus Arts Council?s Dresden, Germany Residency Grant and multiple grants from the Virginia A. Groot Foundation. Wunderlich mothered five children while actively making art, as documented in the film, WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS? Wunderlich is also a marathon runner, swimmer, bow-hunter, grandma, and an associate professor of art at Monmouth College in Monmouth, IL.
