Demonstrations, classes and workshops will be presented at various times during this exhibition. During the Gallery Reception held April 25, members of the Neuse Quilter’s Guild demonstrated a “bed quilt turning” and members provided information on the group and
individual quilted projects. Stay tuned for updates on these additional events. Some of the items exhibited will be for sale, with proceeds supporting this organization and some of its community projects. The public is invited to purchase a raffle ticket for a quilt designed by and benefiting Neuse Quilters, which is an Umbrella Organization of CCA. The quilt is a Dresden Plate design pattern, measuring 85"x100". The quilt is on display and tickets are available at the Arts Center, $1 each, or 6 tickets for $5. The drawing for the quilt  is June 25. The Guild is asking for ideas of interest from the public for their planning purposes. Please forward any ideas to Sandy Landis at or (252) 527-2517.


Now Showing — Mike Sagaser: “Flight School Installation” — Mike is a mixed media, ceramic, mosaic, and digital artist. This loaned installation features molded and painted planes suspending in formation and as an artist’s simulation of aerial maneuvers.

“This piece originated as a challenge to create 100 identical copies of the same object to form a stand-alone installation. Each jet is made from stoneware, hand pressed into a plaster cast,
bisque-fired, then glaze-fired with an irregular black surface and a single golden “eye.” The boundary between human made machine and living thing is blurred by the skin-like
texture of each jet’s glaze."

“The jet-swarm dives in and out of the rafters like schooling fish effortlessly swimming over our heads immersed in the thin compressible fluid of the air, chasing an unseen goal and responding to unseen forces. From mechanism to body, we feel the flow of power and vulnerability and wonder at their destination and motivation.”
