Galley of HeavenRidley Gallery at Sierra College presents "Heaven", an exhibition of ceramic installation by Rebekah Bogard. This exhibition runs March 2-23, with a reception and Artists talk March 11 from 5:00-7:00 pm.

Filled with intricately sculpted ceramic flora in a dimly lit and mysterious setting, "Heaven" departs from Bogard's previous work which focused on more fantasy based animal imagery, now creating a surreal garden environment one might expect fanciful animals to be hiding in. Bogard states "I imagine a beautiful world where mystery lives. In the darkness, our imagination is lit as we are left to fill in the blanks of what goes unseen".

Bogard received her MFA from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2003. She received a BFA from the University of Wyoming in Laramie in 2000. She is currently an Associate Professor in Ceramics at University of Nevada Reno as well as a studio artist.

She has received numerous awards including being named an “Emerging Artist” by both the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts and Ceramics Monthly Magazine. She has been awarded a residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. In addition she is a two-time recipient of the Nevada Fine Arts Council Fellowship, as well as receiving the “Best of Show” in several national art competitions. Her work has shown in several solo and group exhibitions nationwide, recently including a solo exhibition at the American Museum of Ceramic Arts. Moreover, her work has been reviewed in publications such as Art in America, LA Times, Sculpture Magazine, Artweek, Ceramics Monthly Magazine, and Clay Times Magazine. You may also find examples of her artwork on her website, www.RebekahBogard.com.
