Lindsey M. Dillon is a ceramic artist whose work tells stories about fundamental human experiences through the lens of the imaginary. Combining history, mythology, architecture, and the more modern fields of concept art and character design, she develops narratives that exist in glimpses, both as functional pottery and as figurative sculptures. Her work extends an indirect invitation to reflect on our own experiences, perhaps tapping into those themes that have tied stories and people together for thousands of years.
Lindsey received the 2018 Emerging Artist Award from the Arts and Business Council of the Sacramento Region, an Honorary Mention in Blue Line Arts’ America’s ClayFest III in 2015, and an Expressions of Excellence Award at Northern California Arts Inc. and Sacramento Fine Arts Center’s Bold Expressions exhibition in 2017. She has exhibited in the California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art (CCACA) since 2014, and was featured in Sacramento News and Review’s article covering CCACA in 2017. She has participated in Verge Center for the Art’s Sac Open Studios, been juried into conventions in Sacramento and San Jose, and was commissioned to create original award sculptures for the California State Library’s Early Learning Initiative in 2017. Her work is available in several Sacramento-based businesses.
