The ceramic work of Jan Copeland, known as "Raku," is a Japanese firing technique done by taking a red, glowing hot pot from the fire or kiln and placing it into a combustible area filled with saw dust, dried leaves, paper and other materials.


The paintings by John Newman, a retired art professor, feature the figure to capture the human condition.
