Control + Release, curated by Amanda Evans, is a survey of young career Los Angeles aritsts who use clay as their primary medium. While the exhibiton explores a diverse set of aprroaches to contemporary ceramic sculpture it highlights common threads within these expanded practices. The exhibtion examines the art object as a rhetorical, symbolic, and critical artifact through which history and contemporary culture might be interpreted. It also considers the dynaaic fragility and longevity of clay by highlighting the acrobatics of the materials, the slippage of meaning and from, and its simultaneous delicacy and brutality. 
Artist include: Julia Haft-Candell, Anabel Juarez, Gerardo Monterrubio, Meghan Smythe and Emily Sudd.

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery presents a program of rotating contemporary art exhibitions on the campus of Biola University. Located in the greater Los Angeles area, the Green Art Gallery is well positioned to represent a vital Christian worldview within the critical dialogue of contemporary visual art and to produce engaging exhibitions that grapple with issues concerning the intersection of faith with art and culture. The Green Art Gallery also provides professional development opportunities for Biola art students through gallery exhibitions and internships.

The Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery was renovated and dedicated in September 2013. The gallery is named in memory of Earl and Virginia Green—the parents of Roberta Ahmanson—whose lives exemplified faith and commitment to their family, church, and community, and who inspired their daughter’s love of the arts as a person of faith. Biola University expresses profound appreciation to Howard and Roberta Ahmanson for their continued generosity in supporting arts programming at Biola.
