About the Exhibition: Short Stories is an exhibition of works by Steve Garcia, who is pursuing a master of fine arts degree majoring in ceramics.

Garcia's works are not the typical pots and turned pieces that many picture when they think of ceramics. Rather, his works are "ceramic prints," in which silkscreen, ceramic decals and digital photography are all incorporated into the ceramic medium to create works that are compositional rather than form-oriented. Garcia has used the computer as a tool to manipulate and create images that are narratives and glimpses of the world and society today.

The public is invited to meet the artist at an opening reception on April 22 at 7 p.m.
