Event Description
Organized by director John Olbrantz, the exhibition features 17 ceramic vessels from the collection of Keith Achepohl and examines how African potters - who are primarily women - have created unique and innovative ceramic vessels for domestic and ritual use. Made by hand and often fired in the open, these vessels embody an immediacy of form and a deceptive simplicity that reflect a deep understanding of material, process, and embellishment.
