Two exhibits – “Current Clay” and “Tiny Cameras, Tiny Pictures” – will be featured this fall in the Bliss Gallery on the second floor of Bliss Hall on the campus of Youngstown State University.
- “Tiny Cameras, Tiny Pictures,” which runs through Oct. 25, is a nationally-juried photo competition featuring photographs by 14 artists whose source for taking photographs was a cell phone camera. The exhibit is sponsored by Ochosi Editions of Chicago. The competition was juried by internationally recognized photographer/writer John Sevigny. Winners were selected from Illinois, California, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Guatemala. The
exhibition has been shown previously at Benedictine University in Illinois and will travel to Central America later this fall. Claudia Berlinski, YSU art professor, will include in the exhibit cell phone photographs taken by students enrolled in Two-Dimensional Design classes at YSU.

- “Current Clay,” which runs Oct. 28 to Nov. 8, is a collection of ceramic artwork created by YSU students taking Ceramic Art courses, taught by Professor Missy McCormick. The work includes unique and innovative solutions to project assignments from Introduction to Ceramics, Intermediate Ceramics, and independent proposals from all levels of Advanced Ceramics, as well as an experimental collaborative assignment at the intro level. A reception will be held 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, in the Gallery. For more information, contact Missy McCormick at email@example.com or call 330-941-3701.
