Gallery Night Featuring Sam Chumley

May 6 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Able Trade for the monthly First Friday Gallery Event this time featuring the ceramic works of Sam Chumley!

Sam sees pottery as a medium that is familiar and approachable cross culturally, and therefore provides a solid platform to express ideas to an audience. The imagery he utilize references the stylistic elements of traditional tattoos with dense, vivid tones and bold lines.

Sam has a MFA from Ball State University a BFA in ceramics from Indiana University Southeast and a BA in writing from Indiana University Southeast.
