Dock 6 Pottery is excited to announce our exhibition running concurrently with NCECA 2019 in Minneapolis.
Reception: Thursday, March 28, 5–9pm
Show opens: Tuesday, March 26
Show closes: Sunday, March 31
As both a successful modern-day production pottery and a separate retail gallery hosting work by additional local artists, Dock 6 Pottery is an uncommon creature. It is perhaps only in a “Claytopian” society like ours here where both could be possible. Much like the founding fathers and mothers of the Minnesota pottery culture in the 1960s, Dock 6 Pottery owner Kerry Brooks has also influenced the next generations of clay artists in her roles as a successful production pottery employer and gallery host. Many of her employees are artists in their own right, and while the influence of their tenures at Dock 6 may not be obvious in their personal lines of work, all have been impacted by her legacy in one way or another. This exhibition will host dinnerware settings made by several current and former Dock 6 Pottery employees. We invite you to come and see this legacy in action.
