"I feel so fortunate to have found such a wonderful way to express my creative side," said Hamilton, who was recently awarded the Levin Scholarship for her work.
Hamilton will be one of more than 75 artists exhibiting works in Walnut Creek at the Civic Arts Education and Clay Arts Guild's spring showcase. The show runs April 19-22 in two Walnut Creek locations: Civic Arts Shadelands Campus and Civic Arts Park Studios.
Shoppers and art lovers will find an extensive variety of hand-crafted ceramic pottery, sculpture, paintings, jewelry, photography, and more at the art extravaganza.
Other Danville artists in the show include Mimi Wild, who weaves animal and bird imagery into her sculptures; Martha Kean, who salt-fires her creative designs in an electric kiln; Alamo resident Bee Hylinski, who works in fiber, glass and metal; and 96-year-old Sonja Biberman, who can still be found at the Clay Arts Guild continuing her life-long love affair with clay.
The twice-yearly art show includes artists displaying an extensive variety of handcrafted, one-of-a-kind items. Ceramic pottery and sculpture, including low-fired Raku and salt-glazed works, will be available at 1313 Civic Drive in Studios D and E, while paintings, jewelry, photography, fiber arts, mixed media and more will be displayed at 111 N. Wiget Lane.
An opening night party takes place from 5-9 p.m., Thursday, April 19, in both locations with the show continuing through Sunday.
