Curator Gwynne Rukenbrod put this challenge to ClayHouston, a local artist group: Stretch clay, what it looks like and what it means. The group answered with a variety of ceramic works. The result is "Stretch," a juried show with pieces by 24 artists. Some were sculptural, others functional, but all of them used new approaches or techniques such as complex glazing processes or new methods of marking. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Through May 23. Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, 4848 Main. For information, call 713-529-4848 or visit www.crafthouston.org. Free.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: April 13. Continues through May 23, 2010
