Part window, part mirror, Karolina Adams’ drawings show us her thoughts, emotions, and reactions to them with relatable insight that may give viewers a better understanding of their own inner psychology. In a minimal color palette, Adams’ animated protagonist navigates a world of finely rendered symbols and metaphors, overcoming obstacles and making peace with external stimuli. Come to view the work, share in the journey, and realize that most of us are just doing the best we can.

This annual exhibition has grown from a local and regional quilt show to a respected vehicle for contemporary works. Previously hosted by the Chandler Center for the Arts, this year’s Art Quilts XXIV exhibition will be held at the Vision Gallery. The yearly exhibition draws entries from around the United States and Canada and allows hundreds of visitors each year to experience quilting as an art form. This year's theme is "From Ordinary to Extraordinary," defined by this year's juror Georgia Heller as,“Something [that] goes above and beyond what is expected. Extraordinary magic can be woven through ordinary daily life, and heroes are ordinary people who do extraordinary things.”

The four ceramic artists featured in this show grew up in Chandler, all graduating from Chandler High School. They came to ceramics at different stages of their lives: Al Pace received his MFA at Arizona State University then taught ceramics for most of his professional life at Chandler High School. Clay Martinez and Tom Budzak were students of Mr. Pace’s early on, and Kathleen Escobedo began her journey in ceramics just before her retirement. All four approach the medium with varying perspectives, displaying a uniquely diverse range in their work. They are all homegrown.
