This Saturday October 6th 2012

Alpha Ceramics would cordially like to invite you, and all your friends to the opening of their

“Pot Luck!”

the Second Annual

Ruth Rippon Alumni Show

The show is a “Celebration of art, a celebration of learning and a celebration of friends” (Brian Tanner, Alpha Ceramics Genius)

A Teacher of Teachers Ruth Rippon had through her Art and long time Ceramic instructing position at Sac State created a legacy of inspiration that continues on today rippling its excellent ways through the tides of time.

“She taught you that art is an attitude”, Brian embellished.

“It’s about the process”.

And one of the best parts of the process was the end of semester “Pot Luck”

When Students and Teachers came together to show there work and celebrate this life with a gathering of friends.

And this First Saturday, October 6th 2012,

The Tradition lives on!

As the students of Ruth Rippon (and their students!) come together again to show there work and to Celebrate Life!
