Fire Arts Center

Well-known local artists Susan Beecher, Kit Davenport and Peggy Loudon exhibit works at Fire Arts Center Gallery during January and February.

Fire Arts is exhibiting the works of three well-known local artists at our Gallery during January and February. A reception is planned for Friday, February 10, 5-7pm during Arts! Arcata. All are invited.

Susan Beecher is a nationally recognized Studio Potter whose work has appeared in more than 80 national juried shows over the past 30 years. She was Director of Sugar Maples Center for the Arts in Maplecrest, New York for 15 years, where she taught workshops and expanded the offerings of the center. Her work has appeared in articles in Ceramics Monthly & Studio Pottery. In 2005, a book exploring her work was published by Catskill Press: Susan Beecher: Wood Fired Pottery.

Arcata ceramic artist, Kit Davenport, is exhibiting drawings that are part of a recent body of work based on sketches she uses to develop concepts for clay sculpture. The drawings begin with a sketchbook page (or photocopy) and are developed colorfully with ink, acrylic and colored pencil, and collaged mulberry paper.

Peggy Loudon has been creating beautiful, functional pieces for many years in Humboldt County. She is an instructor at Fire Arts and has shown her work in many local and national shows. Peggy’s work has been featured in several publications, including Ceramics Monthly, Craft of Northern California, Ceramics Today and the California Association of Clay and Glass Artists of Northern California and was a selected artist on the KEET Television Special “Studio Space’.

Fire Arts, located at 520 S. G Street in Arcata, across from the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center, has been teaching ceramics and fused glass skills and providing studio space and kiln firing resources to the local community since 2000. Fire Arts is open every day and has a large selection of locally- made ceramic and fused glass pieces for sale all year.
