Blue Line Arts Presents
Off Center
Second Annual International Ceramic Art Competition:
international artists sharing their vision of ceramic art.
Since the first ceramics were created, like Venus of Dolní Věstonice, before 25,000 BCE
and pottery vessels that were discovered in Jiangxi, China, which date back to 18,000
BC, people have been fascinated with clay. Here is your opportunity to show what your
vision is in ceramics.
Our Judge this year will be Michelle Gregor who will be our Susan Cooley Gilliom Artist
in Residence  in the spring at Blue Line Arts for two weeks.
Michelle Gregor sculpts the abstracted human figure in ceramic. Continuing the
tradition of artists such as Manuel Neri and Stephen DeStaebler (with whom she
worked during her graduate studies), Gregor’s forms apply the free, intuitive impulses of
Abstract Expressionism to figurative representation. Her pieces range in dimension from
a few inches tall to architectural-scale bronzes, but are unified in their sense of calm,
mass and balance, simultaneously suggesting motion and repose. Perhaps best known as
a colorist, her painterly, multi-layered and multi-fired approach to surface endows her
sculptures with a sense of depth and the passage of time. Gregor has a Bachelor of Fine
Arts degree from University of California, Santa Cruz and a Master of Fine Arts degree
from San Francisco State University. She is a tenured Professor of Art at San Jose City
