In 2010 artists Elizabeth Coleman, Roxanne Jackson, and Pete Scherzer were awarded a Jerome Ceramic Artist Project Grant. Beginning January 14, their art will be on display in the "Three Jerome Artists" exhibit at the Northern Clay Center.

Roxanne Jackson describes her work as "macabre and emotional." On the Clay Center's website, she explains that she finds inspiration from "the dualities of our nature; these polar aspects...vulnerability and strength, the light and the dark, the human and the inhuman."
And though Pete Scherzer's creations may be functionally domestic when compared to Coleman's and Jackson's work, his pieces are equally as striking. "Historical associations, form, surface, and function all combine and interact," he says.
The "Three Jerome Artists" exhibition begins on Friday, January 14 with an opening reception party from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Northern Clay Center at 2424 East Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis. The artists work will be on display through February 27, 2011.
