HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- The Huntington Museum of Art presents "Sources and Influences: Contemporary Clay Artists, Mentors and Students" through May 20.
The exhibit explores the connections, tangible and intangible, between mentors and students within the current studio ceramics community in the United States, beginning with a single, representative work by each of the 22 clay artists who have participated in the Walter Gropius Master Artist Workshop Series. In keeping with the theme, each of the artists has selected two additional ceramists to display work alongside their own: an artist they consider their mentor, and another that they have mentored.
Ceramics artist Kathleen Kneafsey has been artist-in-residence for the past 10 years. She will lead a guided tour of the exhibit during the March Tuesday Tour, 7 p.m. March 27. A reception follows, and admission is free.
