Massachusetts Clay show opens in Lexington
"The State of Clay," a biennial exhibit of Massachusetts-related clayworkers, opens Sunday afternoon at the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society in Lexington. This is the sixth show the Lexington people have organized and it promises to be a good one. This year's exhibit was juried by Jim Lawton, head of the clay program at U. Mass.-Dartmouth.
I had two pots in the last State of Clay and I have one in this one, a carbon-trapped Shino vase. I'll attach a photo of the pot. It's always good to be recognized, especially when the notice of inclusion in the show comes in the deepest part of winter, when things are ... ummmm ... slow and cold around Cape Cod and in the studio. We need a little cheer about that time of year.
The opening is Sunday, March 29, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Arts and Crafts Society's gallery on Waltham St. in Lexington. Jim Lawton will give a gallery talk and there will be food and drink. See you there.
