Sandra Trujillo & Curtis Stewardson are primarily ceramists who are combining drawing and pottery in this exhibition. The source material for this exhibition consists of an extension and simplification of a previous body of drawings they created during an artist-in-residency at the OBRAS Foundation in Portugal called "table for two". It was clear from the midpoint on this project that their drawings were destined to become something other than traditional dinnerware. The title of this body of work pays a debt to the great Georgio de Chirico for leading them into the path of impossible paths with looming shadows and dead ends. The students (especially art students) and community (pottery/ceramic enthusiasts) will benefit from seeing this exhibition.
