Fresno artist Stan Bitters' career in ceramics has spanned six decades. His large scale works include ceramic murals, sculptures, fountains, and garden pathways. These installations can still be experienced in public spaces including banks, hotels, schools, churches, industrial complexes, and shopping malls as well as private residences throughout California. Bitters’ influence has been present in the language of California architecture since the 1960s. Ten10 has represented Stan Bitters in Southern California since 2003. During this time period, we are proud to have completed over 40 commissioned works, including murals at the ACE Hotel in Palm Springs, California, and a large scale fountain at the Promenade West complex in downtown Los Angeles.
Stan Bitters' work was featured as a part of the prestigious California Design series of exhibitions and annuals that chronicled art and design in California from 1954-1976. As a bookend in time to those exhibits, he had pieces featured as part of a group show entitled Golden State of Craft 1960-1985 at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, CA. This show was part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, an unprecedented collaboration of more than 60 museums and other cultural institutions in Southern California, celebrating the birth of the Los Angeles art scene. Stan's work is also being exhibited at Heath Ceramics' Boiler Room in San Francisco.
