“Cover Jar," a cone 12-gas reduction piece, is one of two works by Alan Stankiewicz selected for a juried exhibition.

Arts and Media Department Mentor Alan Stankiewicz has had two pieces selected for a juried clay exhibition in Rochester, N.Y., through the Firehouse Gallery.

“Cover Jar” is a cone 12-gas reduction piece and the other work, which is untitled, is a bottle done in a cone six-wood salt firing.

There will be 22 artists from 15 states represented in the show.

The opening reception takes place from 6-9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 10, at the Flower City Arts Center (formerly Genesee Center for the Arts and Education), 713 Monroe Ave., Rochester, N.Y.

More information about the exhibition and the opening reception is available by calling 585-271-5183.

Stankiewicz works out of Clayscapes, a family-run studio in Syracuse, N.Y. He also is a member of the Independent Potter’s association (IPA), which participates in several community fundraisers every year.

“We just competed our ‘Cups for a Cause’ campaign,” said Stankiewicz. “This year, IPA raised $7,500 for Francis House, a hospice organization here in Syracuse. We also work on 'The Empty Bowls,' a community-based project with Syracuse University and Clayscapes, to raise money for local food organizations and soup kitchens. This year $20,000 was raised.”
