Winter Wares: Ceramic Arts To Have AND To Hold

circa1.jpgAn evening of ceramic and glass art showcased by the fine cuisine of Sapor Cafe & Wine Bar was the perfect prelude to Winter Wares, a companion event held at Circa Gallery, Minneapolis, MN, December 13th.

Winter Wares provided a festive, personal venue in which supporters, collectors, visitors and fellow artists could browse and meet-and-greet. The work of ceramic artists, Nick DeVries, Victoria Dawes, Will Dix, Adam Gruetzmacher, Mike Helke, Joe Kraft, Nick Moen, Erin Paradis, David Swenson and Jason Trebs was on display. Guests took full advantage of the ‘pottery dessert formal’ theme, purchasing items in which to enjoy the desserts and beverages provided.

The evening’s host, Tom Lancaster, friend of artist Nick Moen, shared a story that highlighted the accessible, multifaceted nature of the art– and the event.

“A guest of the exhibit arrived and indicated that she was visually impaired. She was worried about experiencing the show; how she would ‘look at it’”.

“I told her not to give it a second thought. We walked through together and she marveled at the pieces that were so ‘visually tactile’…like a mug with an intricate, patterned surface and the plate by Victoria Dawes that has a bite mark constructed in to the design– she was just blown away by those pieces and bought them to add to her collections.”
