Doug Jeppesen is an Assistant Professor of Art/Ceramics at Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove, Illinois. Jeppesen earned a BFA in Art and a BA in Art History from the University of Tulsa and his MFA from Northern Illinois University. Jeppesen's work has appeared in numerous national exhibitions including Feats of Clay, Strictly Functional and the Wichita National.
In Jeppesen’s striking and tactile hand-thrown ceramic vessels, the artist captures the essence of modern day society while reflecting on the rich history of functional pottery. From a solitary morning cup of coffee to a lively family dinner, the utilitarian pot is a symbol of culture, both past and present.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday 3–6 p.m.; Saturday 1–4 p.m. Closed Sundays and Mondays.
The Exhibition is free and open to the public. Clark Arts Center is accessible. For more information, contact the Rockford College Box Office at 815-226-4100.
