Art museum presents ceramics from Kolva-Sullivan collection

PULLMAN, Wash. – The Museum of Art/WSU will present “Ceramics from the Kolva-Sullivan Collection” through March 30. An opening reception will be 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, in the Museum of Art/WSU Gallery. Both are free to the public.
The Jim Kolva and Pat Sullivan collection is a comprehensive sampling of Northwest ceramic artists. Having owned and operated a gallery in Spokane, Wash., for many years, the two have built a proverbial “who’s who” collection of northwest ceramic art. The Kolva-Sullivan Gallery – housed in an industrial warehouse space along with their “Soho style” loft residence – has presented many exhibits that include a ceramics emphasis and new work by emerging artists.
Many of the artists are alumni of the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts, an educational institution located in Helena, Mont. Some of the best ceramic artists working in the United States have graduated from this institution.
The WSU museum is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Monday–Saturday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Thursday and closed Sunday. For more information, contact the museum at 509-335-1910 or visit
