Santa Fe Clay, 545 Camino de la Fa­milia, 505-984-1122 Ce­ramic artist Gene Do­dak’s ex­hi­bi­tion The Mak­ing of a War­rior con­tin­ues through Nov. 30. Af­ter a ca­reer in land­scape and de­sign in the Bay Area, Do­dak re­dis­cov­ered a love of clay af­ter mov­ing to Palm Springs in 2004. “I’m cap­ti­vated by the Poly­ne­sian cul­tures, na­ture, ma­rine life, and the vis­ual arts through­out his­tory,” he states. “Cre­at­ing art­work ex­presses a con­nec­tion to the spir­i­tual.” The Poly­ne­sian in­flu­ence is present in the cur­rent ex­hibit, in­spired by the art and lan­guage of Oceanic peo­ples, which he adapts to his totemic sculp­tural forms.
