As the Fall semester wound down, (Re)Form, at the H&R Block Artspace, exhibited current work by KCAI ceramics alumni; what a testament to the 125th anniversary of Kansas City Art Institute and the ceramics department! The following excerpt is from H&R Block Artspace:
“(Re)Form explored recent work by graduates of the KCAI ceramics program from the late 1960s to the present.
Curated by Catherine L. Futter, the Helen Jane and R. Hugh “Pat” Uhlmann Curator of Decorative Arts at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the exhibition included pieces primarily in ceramics that have been completed in the last two years and display a wide range of perspectives.
The artists invited to participate in the exhibition include well-known, mid-career and emerging artists who offer a variety of viewpoints — from the vessel and functional work to sculptures, installations and performance art.
(Re)Form demonstrates the diversity of artistic expression in KCAI’s vibrant ceramics program.”
