Rare Chinese ceramics on exhibit at Rock Valley College through Feb. 20
From Jan. 9 to Feb. 20, Rock Valley College (RVC) is presenting a collection of early Chinese ceramics in the Estelle M. Black Library, in the Education Resource Center on the RVC main campus, 3301 N. Mulford Road.
A private collector has chosen to share the collection with the public through the exhibit at RVC. The works will be on display during the library’s regular hours, which are 8 a.m.-9 p.m., Monday-Thursday; 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Friday; and 8 a.m.-1 p.m., Saturday. The library is closed Sundays.
While on display, viewers will be able to examine these timeless objects and will have a chance to see how the ancient potter gave life to each work of art. It will be possible to see how simple clay has been transformed by fire into a spiritual expression that is capable of transcending centuries.
The ceramic objects in this exhibition are from the Neolithic period, Han, Tang, Song, Jin and Liao dynasties.
