PRESENTATION & TALKS


Artist Talk with Camille VandenBerge

Friday, April 17, 7 - 8:30 PM

Peter VandenBerge’s work spans four decades of ceramic history, beginning with Robert Arneson’s first ceramic class at UC Davis. VandenBerge has developed a distinctly gestural style of figurative work that largely centers on stylized portraits of men and women, carrying upon their heads a string of personal objects.  Lately those belongings have shifted to include elephants, tigers, and other endangered animals.  Camille VandenBerge, a sculptor raised in her father’s studio, conveys a sense of the mystical in her female figures, who also serve to protect various creatures, real and imagined.
