2022-2023 Tony Hungerford Memorial Art Gallery Exhibitions


CLAY… I love its smell, its sensuous plasticity affording immediacy of expression. Working with clay is symbolic of my close relationship with the earth and connection to nature.  The creative process is governed by an intuitive form-based focus using the tactile manipulative quality of clay to express symbolic meaning within each piece.  The creation of these pieces may utilize hollow or solid building depending upon the nature of the individual piece. The intent is to use ceramic sculpture in the creation of both contemplative space and the expression of human conditions and concerns.  The sculptures are described as nonobjective biomorphic forms. These forms imbue an organic life-like quality to the wall, pedestal, floor, or garden. The variety of themes expressed are based upon an acknowledgement and expression of universal human conditions common in life’s journey. The viewer is free to experience the sculptural forms, always having the freedom of interpretation, contemplation, or to simply enjoy the essence of the organic presence of each piece. My hope is that these pieces will convey a sense of peace, tranquility, and possibly thoughtful deliberation, resulting in a uniquely personal experience for each person.

Alice M. Yutzy, born on October 7, 1948 in Baltimore, MD spent her formative years living in Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia.  From an early age Alice had an avid interest in art with drawing as one of her favorite pastimes.  Graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park with a B.A. in art education Alice taught art in the public school system for 39 years.  The last 24 of those years Alice was very fortunate to teach what she loved: ceramics and sculpture at the high school level.  She earned her MFA in studio art with a concentration in ceramics at Towson University in 2007.

Alice lives with her husband Dee on 6 ½ wooded acres in rural southern Maryland.  Their 2 grown children, spouses and grandchildren will always be the most important focus and love of their lives.  An avid nature and animal lover, Alice enjoys her three cats and riding her lovely horses Thor and Tanner.

Although her primary chosen media is clay, she has also worked in plaster, wood, stone, cast paper, cast cement and lightweight concrete.  The primary surface finishes are volcanic ash stain and mixed media non ceramic patinas.  

Currently Alice works as a part time professor at the College of Southern Maryland teaching all levels of ceramics.  With self-expression as her focus, she continues to evolve and experiment with various techniques, forms and concepts using clay as her primary media.

'Storm Skyline'

Kaitlin Jencso is a photographer who documents moments of everyday life to communicate intimate and interior experiences. With an eye to cinema, she seeks out beauty in commonplace scenes, focusing on a pop of color, a glimmer of light, a flutter of material. While she captures moments of light and grace, her practice is methodical, the result of diligent shooting and processing to isolate ideas and develop them as themes or installations.

Jencso won the Focal Point award of merit from the Maryland Federation of Art and received a D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities fellowship award in 2023. Jencso is a two-time winner of FotoWeek D.C. She served as a Hamiltonian fellow in 2018–2020. She is a graduate of the College of Southern Maryland and received her BFA in fine art photography from the Corcoran College of Art + Design. She lives and works in Washington, D.C.
