Ceramic artist CHRIS THOMPSON received his B.A. and M.A. in Fine Arts from Sacramento State University and currently teaches art classes there. After serving in the U.S. Air Force for ten years, he is now a veteran and devotes his time to making art and teaching others. Twelve years ago he opened his own art studio in Sacramento, and now he hastwo studios in Sacramento: Max Porcelain and E Street Gallery and Studios. In 2013 he collaborated with Yuba Sutter Arts in the Thousand Bowls Feed the Hungry public art project, and in 2016 he was a part of the Veterans Mural Art Park. At present, he is the lead artist for Ceramics for Veterans workshops in Yuba-Sutter and has his work in the November show with Glenn Husted at Yuba Sutter Arts. Chris describes his work as “functional art with a purpose.” His pieces are vibrant and colorful, and, since he makes his own glazes, he is able to expand his palette of colors. He believes the community comes together through art and that it is the unifying force in our society’s social fabric. Come and view his dynamic bowls and vases which are expressions of interactions between artist and observer. A marvelous show awaits you!
