Ceramic exhibit held at Artists’ Exchange

Posted

On March 26, the Artists’ Exchange, located on Rolfe Square, held the opening reception for its DERP Ceramic Exhibit, which was open free to the public. DERP, curated by the Artists’ Exchange Shannon Casey (pictured below left), director of art resources and instructor, and Heidi Born (pictured above left), ceramic studio manager and instructor, was born out of the idea that no matter what one’s ability level or training, all are artists. The show is the first that combines every aspect of the programming at Artists’ Exchange. All students, ages eight to 78, were invited to show their work alongside teachers and resident artists. The show, which is comprised exclusively ceramic works, was created in conjunction with the annual conference hosted by the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). This is the 49th annual conference, and is in Providence for the first time. There are 7,000 ceramic artists in Rhode Island this week for the National Council for Education of Ceramic Arts. The show will run until April 14. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Above, Orlando Vasquez sells one of his ceramic totems to Sue Figueira.
