  •  
Name: The Great Ceramic Revival – Opening Reception
Date: April 13, 2018
Time: 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM PDT
Event Description:
For its April exhibition, The Art Spirit Gallery celebrates the great ceramic revival by collaborating with highly acclaimed guest curator Peter Held, who has thoughtfully procured twenty top regional clay artists, many of whom he formed deep relationships with at the Archie Bray Foundation during his twenty-plus years in Helena, Montana. Peter describes these years as "an enlightening era that afforded me a depth of knowledge of ceramic activity in the Northwest." For this exhibition, Peter selected artists primarily working with vessel format, producing functional ware or decorative works.  "While their individual styles vary, combined, they reveal an exciting survey of artists from the Northwest, providing a clay continuum spanning four decades of artistic excellence."
 
In his impressive three-decade career as a museum director and contemporary art curator, Peter has organized more than 200 exhibitions, including seven national traveling shows. He has received three of the highest accolades possible within the field from the Friends of Contemporary Ceramics; the Smithsonian’s James Renwick Alliance, and the National Council for Education on the Ceramic Arts.  The Art Spirit Gallery is honored to partner with Peter in this special exhibition.

This show is sponsored by Collective Kitchen – we thank them for their continued support of the arts in our community.”
