While some of the artists represented in the show were born and raised here, others spent a significant portion of their lives carving a career out in the city. The exhibit will include works by Garry Grant, Glenn Tunstull, Kimberly Camp, Larry Walker, Lisa Bradley, Robert Tomlin, McArthur Binion, Melvin Clark, Michael Kelly Williams, Omo Misha, and Amir Bey. The exhibit will run until Dec. 29.

The Art of Containment — Vessels from the Sidney Swidler Collection

Mondays-Sundays. Continues through March 31, 2018

Sidney Swidler’s work as a modern architect helped train his eye to pick up the essential elements of form, texture, glaze selection, craftsmanship, and artistic intent, which he used to collect nearly 1,000 piece of contemporary ceramic art. In 2010, he donated around 800 of those pieces to California’s Crocker Art Museum. Seven years later, he gave 100 pieces to the FIA, a gift that resulted in this exhibit. Hours of the museum are: Monday-Friday: 12 p.m.-5 p.m., Saturday: 10 a.m.- 5 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
