Visitors to the Holiday Ceramic Show and Sale, which opened Thursday and runs through Dec. 14 in Westmont College’s Ridley-Tree Museum of Art, will be able to purchase and walk out the door with items from the exhibition.

“It’s different than past ceramic exhibitions in the gallery, in that this is going to be a cash-and-carry sale,” said Christopher Rupp, museum collections manager, who will also be exhibiting his artwork. “People will be able to buy work on the spot and take it home with them.”

The exhibition features the works of 18 artists from eight states, including Sunshine Cobb, Victoria Christen, Ann Tubbs, Ryan Greenheck, Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish, Sean O’Connell, Ronn Linn, Kyle Carpenter, Sue Tirrell, David Crane, Kristin Pavelka, David Eichelberger, Sandra Torres, Deanna Pini, Joan Rosenberg-Dent and Rupp.

“There will be all kinds of ceramics displayed, functional and nonfunctional,” Rupp said. “There’ll be some beautiful mugs and a mix of other things, too.”

The museum closes the year with “Dreamkeepers: Contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art,” which opens Thursday, Nov. 29.

— Scott Craig is the media relations manager for Westmont College.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
