Nathan Eyer, from Peoria, worked in the Communication Division. He attends GCC and thought the GPD internship would give him work credentials.

GCC Exhibits Ceramics of Artist/Professor, September 7-22

From September 7-22, Glendale Community College will host a free exhibit of the ceramics of 30-year veteran professor and artist, Harry Kaino. The opening night and artist's reception for "Identity Incognito" will be held in the GCC Student Union Lounge on Tues., Sept. 7, at 6:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Kaino's ceramic works evolve from manipulation of wheel-thrown shapes. They suggest organic images, but the completed ceramic forms merge expression with a disciplined control of the clay material to create forms which are ever changing and fluid. GCC is located at 59th and Olive Avenues in Glendale. The Kaino exhibit will be open Mon.-Fri. from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
