Instructors at the Burbank Creative Arts Center are debunking the myth that "those who can't do, teach." Ten ceramics teachers will display their works at an opening at the Creative Arts Center Gallery on Friday. Longtime ceramic instructor Judy Springborn's love of sculpture began while she was enrolled as an art history major during the 1960s at UCLA. "One of the requirements was to take a ceramics class, so I took a class and loved it," Springborn said. After college, she got married and started raising a family.

Ongoing renovation at the historic Brand Library and Art Center in Glendale forced organizers to secure a new location for this year's annual art exhibition, but they found a willing and generous venue in the Burbank Creative Arts Center. Juror Bonese Collins Turner culled carefully through hundreds of entries from across the United States to choose various award winners for “Brand 41: Works on Paper: Memories,” which remains open through Wednesday. The Burbank Creative Arts Center is much smaller than the Brand Gallery, but there is plenty of room to display the winners and a reasonable representation of the entries, all of which are de facto honorable mentions.

Artists have gathered unusual items, from intricate pieces of jewelry to gravel, and applied them to canvas in the new exhibit at the Creative Arts Center Gallery in Burbank. The show features 50 works by 31 members of the Collage Artists of America. The exhibit is unique because it’s all assemblage and collage, said gallery Director Frances Santistevan, of Glendale. “In the last five years, maybe we’ve had three or four shows that have been strictly collage-like,” she said.
