March 2024 General Meeting

Ceramic Artist John Fink
Thursday, March 14, 7-8:45 pm (doors open at 6)
Syosset Library (Downstairs)
225 S. Oyster Bay Road, Syosset, NY

In addition to his teaching at Nassau Community College, John Fink is an award-winning artist and has been affiliated with Manhattan and Long Island galleries for the exhibition and sale of his work, while several individuals throughout the country collect his art. Mr. Fink is a frequent guest artist at a variety of institutions offering demonstrations and workshops in pottery and sculpture to aspiring artists and collectors.

Although his ceramic pottery is mostly functional cups, bowls and teapots, his sculptures are made of hand-fabricated ceramic combined with mixed materials. These works of art reflect the duality of his nature: a sense of humor and a serious side, but always plumbing the depths of what it means to be human.

His whimsical and mythological sculpture includes miniature people and what are called “far-fetch dragons.” These small dinosaur-like creatures, along with miniature human forms, often populate relatively larger imaginative shapes to form mythological, freestanding environments, or at other times, wall pieces, each having a story to tell. Some are created for indoor placement, others for outdoor garden settings. Some of these outdoor pieces are designed as fountains. See John Fink’s art on his web site

John has very generously donated several of his clay works for a silent auction during the meeting, with proceeds going to the Guild. This is your chance to take home one of John’s wonderful, whimsical sculptures and support the Guild at the same time.
