This special exhibition is an opportunity to explore the remarkable talents of Mendocino College's newest ceramics faculty member, Wesley Wright. Mr. Wright's exceptional artistry is set to captivate and inspire visitors as they delve into his world.

Wesley Wright brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the ceramics department at Mendocino College. His body of work reflects a deep understanding of the intricate relationship between form, material, and artistic expression. By joining our faculty, he enhances our commitment to providing students with exceptional educational experiences in the arts.

"Full Circle: Wesley Wright Sculpture" will feature an array of Mr. Wright's breathtaking sculptures, each a testament to his unique perspective and artistic mastery. “As I live my life, I collect ideas, imagery, and objects that fascinate me,” said Wright. “From this reservoir, I draw the inspiration for my work.  Some of my symbolism is obvious and some more obscure, but all are chosen to help process and critique the world around me.  My work is successful if the viewer is filled with the same sense of wonderment that I experience as I try to understand what it is to exist in this place at this time.”

Please mark your calendar and join us in welcoming Wright to Mendocino County, and explore the fresh perspective he brings to our community.
