‘Sources, Influences’

Huntington museum offers ceramics display

HUNTINGTON — The Huntington Museum of Art will showcase ceramics artists with the exhibit “Sources and Influences: Contemporary Clay Artists, Mentors and Students,” which will run through May 20.

The 66-piece show includes one work each of 22 artists who have visited the museum as a Walter Gropius Master Artist. It also includes a piece of work by each artist’s mentor and by someone the artist has mentored. This is the 20th anniversary of the Gropius master artist program, which brings in artists for workshops and lectures.

A guided tour of the exhibit will be offered at 7 p.m. Tuesday, led by HMA Artist in Residence Kathleen Kneafsey, a ceramics artist who has been with the museum for 10 years.

An opening reception is scheduled at 2 p.m. April 22 with a presentation by Walter Gropius Master Artist Warren MacKenzie, who has work in the “Sources and Influences” exhibit. Also, Walter Gropius Master Artist Randy Johnston will present a demonstration.

In addition, an exhibit showcasing the work of MacKenzie and Johnson appears in the museum through May 6.
