2019 Juror-Gina Freuen

2019’s juror, Gina Freuen

In (art), as in love, we are astonished at what is chosen by others.
— Andre Maurois

Gina Freuen is a working artist and educator with a full-time ceramics and mixed media studio in Spokane, Washington. Since 1996, Gina has been on the teaching faculty in the art department at Gonzaga University (retired Spring 2016) and in the fall of 2013 joined the Trackside Studio Ceramic Art Gallery as an exhibiting partner in its monthly exhibits. She currently volunteers teaching drawing to high school students at the Riverpoint Academy, a Mead School District High School.
Over her 40-year career as a ceramic artist, her work has maintained a focus on pseudo-functional forms that have textural surfaces, both pressed and carved, hand built combined with wheel throwing, and a compositional thought process towards the integrity of a ceramic form’s profile in negative space. She enjoys incorporating botanical and figurative themes, working from the drawings being developed in her studio regimen. Botanical and bird forms reference her love of gardening and add linear divisions to the three-dimensional surfaces.

The basic guidelines are listed below in preparation for future shows. Check back towards the end of the year for 2020’s prospectus and next year’s juror.
