The Willits Center for the Arts presents Evan Hobart and Crystal Kamoroff; two sculptors whose works address world issues and personal explorations.
Hobart has taught ceramics at San Jose State University and Medicine Hat Community College, as well as private classes at Sweet Spirit Ceramic Studio in San Rafael, California. Evan is currently the Ceramics Program Manager at the Mendocino Art Center and the ceramics professor at Mendocino College in Fort Bragg.
Evan presents his predators, sculpted dinosaur skulls with cities buzzing along on top. His inspiration comes from his surrounding environment and a desire to create narrative with his fantastical sculptures.
Crystal Kamoroff grew up in Northern California. She is the daughter of local musician, Bear, and Sharon Kamoroff. Crystal is a San Francisco based artist who has exhibited work in galleries and various art venues both nationally and throughout the Bay Area.
Crystal is an active studio artist with a background in ceramics and sculpture, and has a passion for installation and site-specific art. She is constantly researching information and techniques that inform her work as well as seeking out artist communities that facilitate creative dialogues and collaborations.
Both of these artists will take the Willits Center for the Arts to a new level of artistic expression. Opening night reception, June 30th 6-9pm. The opening is generously being catered by Mariposa Market. Locals will not want to miss this dynamic show on display through July.
