The exhibit will feature clay sculptures and functional pottery.

Grant Kremers, a retired elementary and middle school teacher, has taught art for 41 years and at WNCC for the past eight years. He teaches slab and coiling techniques, ceramic molds, pinch pot, and hand thrown pottery on a wheel in his beginning and advanced classes.
Jo Robinson is a ceramics instructor at WNCC Fallon. She enjoys both hand building and wheelwork , but is best known for her life-sized busts, backs, and torsos. She has a studio-gallery at her home in Fallon, where she gives lessons and occasional Raku and pit fire workshops.
