IXIA is hosting visual artist and pastry chef Rick Griggs
A statement from Rick: I have many different influences: the study of organic properties, urban landscape, and fragments of the past. All of these are abstracted on the canvas and are random renderings of my subconscious. There may be some preconceived idea about what I am portraying, but the approach is always spontaneous.

Norden Living is featuring a limited series of 5 different lithographs by late Peter Voulkos from the collection of the Ruth Braunstein Trust:
"One of the most influential American ceramicists of the twentieth century, Peter Voulkos (1924–2002), was celebrated for a radical approach that fundamentally transformed the field. His avant-garde forms and techniques defied midcentury craft norms, and he reinvented the medium by combining wheel- throwing with slab-building, traditional glazes with epoxy paint, figuration with abstraction, and by building large-scale ceramic structures with complex internal engineering.
Voulkos began his career as a traditional potter, establishing himself as one of the country’s leading postwar functional ceramicists. In 1955, he began to experiment with increasingly unconventional works inspired by a variety of influences, including Abstract Expressionism, Japanese pottery, and artworks of Franz Kline and Pablo Picasso.
His works reimagined utilitarian form, breaking down component parts and reconfiguring them, and using color and contrast to disrupt the visual integrity of his objects and monumental sculptures. Sometimes created as part of live demonstrations, his artworks reflected an intense physicality as well as a sense of immediacy and improvisation. Voulkos explored other media as well, and he developed distinctive bodies of work in painting, bronze sculpture, and prints, but continually he returned to pottery forms to demonstrate their endless potential for experimentation.
Critic David Bonetti described Voulkos’s best work as “a primeval statement, the product of an internalized primitivism. In his ‘plates,’ ‘stacks,’ and ‘ice buckets,’ he returns to the wild and pagan heart of making art.” This series of prints, created in 1979 and published by Master Editions, captures the immediacy and visceral quality Voulkos brought to his practice. First exhibited in San Francisco at the Braunstein/Quay Gallery—Recent Multiples, 6 November through 1 December 1979—they are made available by the Ruth Braunstein Trust.
