Shifting Reverence: Enjoy a gallery reception for “Shifting Reverence,” Friday, March 29, 5-9 pm. Tour an exhibition of ceramic works by Kait Arndt, Brian Caponi, Jennifer Datchuk, Nick Geankoplis, and Yehrim Lee. “Shifting Reverence” is presented in conjunction with “Claytopia,” the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts’ (NCECA) 53rd annual conference taking place in Minneapolis, March 27-30. Since the 1960s, the Twin Cities region has played a pivotal role in shaping a renaissance in studio pottery and craft as cultural forces. Adaptation of Mingei-inspired ideals within the American heartland drove a vision of artfulness in daily life. In “Shifting Reverence,” artists challenge the notions of utility and function in the everyday. The gallery reception is free and open to all ages. The exhibition runs through April 30.
