2019 Juror-Gina Freuen
Check out Gina’s website here: www.ginafreuen.com
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.
Open to all US artists over the age of eighteen. Only original work created, conceived, and executed entirely by you, the artist, after April 1, 2017 and not previously shown in an Allied Arts Association Juried Show will be considered. Work from commercial kits, tutorials, copies, or done under instruction is ineligible.
