January 31, 2013 – May 17, 2013

Inspired by first-hand experience, observed situations, and far-reaching references, the fantastical creatures and characters of Joey Chiarello are considered a narrative or story by the artist. Each ceramic sculpture is finished with elaborate tattoo-like surfaces and often incorporate details such as real cat whiskers or deer antlers. Chiarello lives and works on the island of O‘ahu.

All of the artwork will be on view until the end of the show, May 17th, but many of them are still available for purchase on our website.  Check it out by clicking here: Artwork by Joey Chiarello
