Arts & Entertainment / Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

August 16, 2016 to December 10, 2016. Opening Reception with Gallery Talk by Guest Curator Matthew Limb September 8, 2016, 7-9 p.m. Drawing upon NEHMA’s important collection of twentieth century ceramic objects, Lighting the Fire: Ceramics Education in the American West examines the significant contributions of potters who taught in universities and studios in advancing the medium of clay in the American West. The exhibition surveys the work of more than 20 ceramic artists who through their teaching philosophies inspired generations of students to push the boundaries of the medium. The works presented illustrate how these innovative educators positioned clay as a fine art medium in the mid-twentieth century. Many works in this exhibition have been acquired for the museum through the generous support of the Nora Eccles Treadwell Foundation.
