The Creative Arts Center of Dallas (CAC), a nonprofit school of visual arts and community arts organization geared to beginning, emerging and working artists, will host a new “Process 2 Product: from Inspiration to Innovation” from Friday, July 15 through Saturday, August 19. The exhibition series, organized in honor of CAC’s 50th Anniversary, explores select CAC teaching artist’s artistic process from conception to a finished solution. In the 3rd installation for the year, this show will feature the work and processes of ceramic artist Linda Gossett.
The concept for this series celebrates the arts education process that CAC students experience in their classes, which is a direct result of each of various CAC teaching artist’s journey through ideas, inspiration and their fascination with their mediums. The exhibition demonstrates the struggle and satisfaction of working through an idea with either the desired outcome or knowledge for the next effort.
Linda Gossett has been working in clay for over 20 years. She attended North Texas State University and acquired a Bachelors of Fine Art in advertising and graphic design in 1985. After obtaining a BFA in advertising and graphic design in 1985, she began her relationship with clay when friends suggested she take a ceramics class at a local community college. She recently earned her MA from the University of Dallas and is currently working on a MFA from the university. The exhibition will be in the school’s main building at 2360 Laughlin Drive, Dallas, 75228 with an opening reception on Friday, July 15 from 6:30 to 8:30pm.
