Event Image Figure and Form: African Ceramics from the Keith Achepohl Collection (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Over the centuries, African potters 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. Organized by director John Olbrantz, the exhibition will feature 17 ceramic vessels from the Keith Achepohl collection of Eugene, Oregon.
