Congratulations to Skyline College art professor Tiffany Schmierer, who was recently honored with the San Joaquin Potters Guild Award in the 2018 Visions in Clay National Juried Art Exhibition at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, California! Beth Ann Gerstein, the Executive Director of the Museum of American Ceramic Art in Pomona, California, made the selection of artworks and awards for the exhibition, which featured 58 artworks by 48 artists from around the country. Schmierer exhibited two sculptures in the show and received a cash award for her piece Interconnection.
Schmierer is a highly regarded Bay Area artist. In addition to teaching at Skyline College, Schmierer has an active career in the visual arts, exhibiting her work both nationally and internationally. Most recently, her work was exhibited in Taiwan at the New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum, Sunlight Gallery, and in California at the AMOCA American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona and the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art. In discussing her artwork, Schmierer explains, “The idea expressed in my sculpture Interconnection is the connective threads we have to our environment and each other. Realizing and taking a moment to appreciate these relationships and patterns can help promote needed empathy and care.”
