Ceramic Art Show, Sale to Break the Mold

Visitors to the Holiday Ceramic Show and Sale, which opens Thursday, Nov. 15, in the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art, will be able to purchase and walk out the door with items from the exhibition. The show, which runs through Dec. 14, opens Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. with coffee and sweets. “It’s different than past ceramic exhibitions in the gallery, in that this is going to be a cash-and-carry sale,” says Christopher Rupp, museum collections manager, who will also be exhibiting his artwork. “People will be able to buy work on the spot and take it home with them.”

The exhibition features the works of 18 different artists from eight different states, including Sunshine Cobb, Victoria Christen, Ann Tubbs, Ryan Greenheck, Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish, Sean O’Connell, Ronn Linn, Kyle Carpenter, Sue Tirrell, David Crane, Kristin Pavelka, David Eichelberger, Sandra Torres, Deanna Pini, Joan Rosenberg-Dent and Rupp.

“There will be all kinds of ceramics displayed, functional and non-functional,” Rupp says. “There’ll be some beautiful mugs and a mix of other things too.”

The museum closes the year with “Dreamkeepers: Contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art,” which opens Thursday, Nov. 29.
