Michigan Mud 2015 and Michigan Ceramic Art Association Exhibition

Release Date
Work by Artist Sarah Bosell

HFC will host two art exhibitions at its Sisson Gallery, located in the Grant U. MacKenzie Fine Arts Center (Building F) on the main campus from now until Thursday, Nov. 5. The two art exhibitions are the Michigan Mud 2015 Presenters, Michigan Ceramic Art Association (MCAA) Board Members Exhibition (on the north side of the Sisson) and the MCAA Biennial Student Exhibition.

From Friday, Oct. 23, and Saturday, Oct. 24, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Michigan Mud 2015 Conference – which is put on by the MCAA – will take place in the studio wing and the Adray Auditorium, which is also located in the Fine Arts Center. Additionally, there will be a reception in the Sisson on Oct. 23 from 5 to 7 p.m.

During the Michigan Mud 2015 Conference, Sam Chung, the keynote speaker and guest artist, will select a group of award winners. Artwork has been submitted from more than a dozen colleges and universities in Michigan and northern Ohio. HFC and Oakland Community College (OCC) in Royal Oak are the only two community colleges that submitted artwork to this exhibition.

HFC is represented by student Nate Zrnich with a set of thrown mugs called "Serving Set," which won an award over the summer at Wayne State University; Sophia Hart, of Dearborn, with her clay sculpture, "A Walk In Vincent's Shoes"; and Sarah Bosell, of Dearborn Heights, with her clay sculpture, "Once Upon A Time..."

“HFC in general and the Ceramics program in particular are extremely honored and excited to be hosting this conference. Not only is the conference a great educational opportunity to all who attend, but also a great networking opportunity, especially for students across the state,” said Steve Glazer, HFC ceramics instructor.

Glazer added how pleased he is about how well the work of HFC students stacks up against those of students from across the state, most of whom are attending four-year educational institutions.

All exhibitions and the Oct. 23 reception are free and open to the public. The Sisson Gallery is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more on the Michigan Mud Conference, visit or contact Glazer at 313-845-6485 or
